My beloved world by Sonia Sotomayor ( Book )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The first Hispanic and third woman appointed to the United States Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor has become an instant American icon. Now, with a candor and intimacy never undertaken by a sitting Justice, she recounts her life from a Bronx housing project to the federal bench, a journey that offers an inspiring testament to her own extraordinary determination and the power of believing in oneself. Here is the story of a precarious childhood, with an alcoholic father (who would die when she was nine) and a devoted but overburdened mother, and of the refuge a little girl took from the turmoil at home with her passionately spirited paternal grandmother. But it was when she was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes that the precocious Sonia recognized she must ultimately depend on herself. She would learn to give herself the insulin shots she needed to survive and soon imagined a path to a different life. With only television characters for her professional role models, and little understanding of what was involved, she determined to become a lawyer, a dream that would sustain her on an unlikely course, from valedictorian of her high school class to the highest honors at Princeton, Yale Law School, the New York County District Attorney's office, private practice, and appointment to the Federal District Court before the age of forty. Along the way we see how she was shaped by her invaluable mentors, a failed marriage, and the modern version of extended family she has created from cherished friends and their children. Through her still-astonished eyes, America's infinite possibilities are envisioned anew in this warm and honest book, destined to become a classic of self-invention and self-discovery

La primera latina y tan sOlo la tercera mujer designada a la Corte Suprema de los Estados Unidos, Sonia Sotomayor se ha convertido en un icono americano contemporAneo.

Esta es la historia de una niNez precaria, con un padre alcohOlico que moriria cuando ella tenia nueve aNos y una madre devota pero sobrecargada, y del refugio que una niNa tomO de la confusiOn del hogar con su apasionada y energica abuela. Pero no fue hasta que le diagnosticaron diabetes juvenil que la precoz Sonia reconociO que, en Ultima instancia, dependia de si misma. Pronto aprenderia a darse a si misma las inyecciones de insulina necesarias para sobrevivir y a rApidamente forjar un camino hacia una vida mejor. Con personajes de televisiOn como modelo y poca idea sobre lo que en realidad implicaba, Sonia decidiO ser abogada, un sueNo que la sostendria en su improbable recorrido, desde su brillante paso por la escuela secundaria, la universidad de Princeton y la escuela de Derecho de Yale hasta la fiscalia de distrito del Condado de Nueva York, la prActica privada, y el nombramiento a la Corte Federal de Distrito, todo antes de llegar a los cuarenta aNos. A lo largo del camino vemos como Sonia fue formada por diversas experiencias (como su fallido matrimonio), mentores invaluables, y la versiOn moderna de familia que creO con amigos queridos y sus hijos.
