What is a career? Abby tells Sotomayor that she wants to be a Princess as her career. What little girl hasn’t at one point dreamt of being a princess? I certainly did, but have we been leading girls on to believe it is our only option? Wait until the Knight in shinning armor sweeps us off our feet and takes us away on his white horse to his glamorous castle.
There is so much more to us than that! We can have our cake and eat it too. Find the Prince (or Princess) of your dreams AND build a career. Sotomayor has a real impact when she teaches little ones that we can be strong, and successful career women like her.
