Sonia Sotomayor ’76, Associate Justice on the United States Supreme Court, reflects on the various ways that one can live a life of service. She wonders whether we have conflated the idea of service into a daunting goal for the next generation and counsels us to break down “service” to its basics: sacrificing one’s own interests to help another in need. Justice Sotomayor inspires other Princetonians to be role models of service to those around them by providing tangible, one-on-one acts of service and talks about service on the personal, professional, and civic levels. She additionally provides her personal key to happiness: asking two specific questions of oneself each night. Sotomayor was the Woodrow Wilson Award winner, Alumni Day 2014.
