Growing up in a public housing project in the 1950s and faced with the challenge of juvenile diabetes, Sonia Sotomayor was determined to be somebody who defied expectations.  Setting her sights on a career in law, she learned how to be an excellent student, which lead her to Ivy League Schools and a fast track legal career. Her ultimate, private goal to become a judge was soon realized and her strong work led President Obama to select her to be the third woman to serve on the Supreme Court.
