Sonia Sotomayor
The Supreme Court's 11th Justice also became its first Hispanic when Sonia Sotomayor was elected to the bench in 2009. Born in the Bronx to Puerto Rican parents, Justice Sotomayor graduated from Princeton University and Yale Law School. Of her Latino roots she has said: "Although I am an American, love my country and could achieve its opportunity of succeeding at anything I worked for, I also have a Latina soul and heart, with the magic that carries."
