Bet you can’t get enough of Sotomayor coverage. I mean, did you know that she went to Princeton?!?! How cool is that?!?! Here’s a piece in the National Journal‘s The Ninth Justice blog on her time at Old Nassau, just in case you’re interested.
The sense of otherness had a profound impact on Sotomayor. “I felt isolated from all I had ever known, and very unsure about how I would survive here,” she said in the 1996 speech. Sotomayor channeled her alienation into advocacy, making her mark on a turbulent college campus. “She was,” former Princeton President William Bowen said, “a student of her generation.” Or, perhaps her critics may think, a victim of it.
