Famous Speech Friday: Justice Sonia Sotomayor's law school question

The Eloquent Woman

Sotomayor graduated from Yale Law School in 1979 and has published her memoir, My Beloved World , admitting she hadn''t so much as raised her hand, let alone ask a question in all that time. Sotomayor said: And I don''t know that I''ve ever been shy-shy, but I was a much more self-contained and less outgoing person in the earlier parts of my life. But I had some measure of self-confidence but not enough to feel secure among my very brilliant Yale classmates.
