Justice Sonia Sotomayor Will Make History Again On Inauguration Day
It's always exciting to see a Latina take center stage, and be part of history.
That will happen when U.S. Supreme Court Justice, Sonia Sotomayor swears in Vice President, Joe Biden.
According to ABC News, Biden chose the original "Wise Latina" to swear him in at the inauguration. She will be the first Hispanic and fourth female judge to administer the oath of office.
Sotomayor made history in 2009, when she became the first Hispanic on the U.S. Supreme Court.
President Obama and Vice President Biden will be sworn in at a private ceremony on January 20, and the ceremonial swearing-in will be on Monday, January 21 in front of the U.S. Capitol.
Sotomayor continues to inspire us Latinas to be the best we can be in any field we choose to pursue as a career.
Tune in to watch her!
