Sonia Sotomayor is an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, appointed by President Barack Obama in 2009. Born on June 25, 1954, in the Bronx, New York City, she graduated summa cum laude from Princeton University in 1976 and received her J.D. from Yale Law School in 1979. Sotomayor served as an Assistant District Attorney in New York City from 1979 to 1984, before entering private practice.

In 1991, she was nominated by President George H. W. Bush to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, becoming the youngest judge in the Southern District. In 1998, President Bill Clinton nominated her to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, where she served until her Supreme Court appointment. Sotomayor is the first Hispanic and Latina Justice, as well as the third female Justice, to serve on the Supreme Court.
