Sonia Sotomayor made history in 2009 when she became the first Hispanic U.S. Supreme Court Justice. In her memoir, "My Beloved World," Justice Sotomayor shares candid memories about growing up in a Puerto Rican household, and how a girl from the Bronx who struggled to write English essays eventually went on to top honors at Princeton University and Yale Law School. Justice Sotomayor joins us in the studio.
