Every Princeton person should read My Beloved World by Sonia Sotomayor ’76 (A Moment With, March 6) and Sonia Sotomayor: The True American Dream by Antonia Felix. I wrote Justice Sotomayor how, as the son of immigrants and a Princeton janitor, I experienced many of the emotional problems that she also experienced as an undergraduate at Princeton. She was kind enough to write me a personal note. What an inspiration to all poverty students who made it through Princeton, competing against the elite and well-prepared wealthy students.
