– Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
Sotomayor is used to be being first. She is the first Hispanic and only the third woman to serve on the court, and is well-regarded for her toughness (she often is the lone voice on a given side of a Supreme Court decision). Her advice to others breaking ground rings true whether you’re a Supreme Court justice or venturing out to new creative territory.
