Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor recently published a book entitled My Beloved World about her childhood in the Bronx.  In her book, she discloses her struggles after being diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of eight.  She discusses how she dreamed of being a police officer, but wasn't able to pursue the career after being diagnosed.  I'm sure becoming the first Hispanic and third female justice of the Supreme Court wasn't too disappointing! 

My dad and I talked about the personal information that Sotomayor shared in her book and in recent interviews, and agreed that she is extremely inspirational and brave.  

Check out this article about Sotomayor sharing her story with a youth group, and try talking to the loved ones you know with diabetes about their own experiences.
