She is of Puerto Rican heritage, and during her time as a student at Princeton University thought for more Latino representation in teaching. After graduating from Yale Law School, she was admitted to the New York Bar. She was a Federal District and Court of Appeals Judge before being nominated to the Supreme Court by President Obama.
