Guam - Even if she was on island only for a couple of days, visiting U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor left a lasting lifelong impression on hundreds of people who attended a conversation with her at the University of Guam Field House in Mangilao. GCC student Ariane Nepomuceno said, "There's a lot of guards and security, but when she actually came down and interact with students and sat down with us, I was like, 'Wow, she's really down to earth!', and I would love to meet her again."
UOG president Dr. Robert Underwood added, "The most important lesson I learned is that anybody can really have a big dream and that's something that we constantly tell people and people don't believe it. They think that maybe life is rigged or things are fixed for some people, but she gave a very inspiration talk and very inspirational words"
Rose Lagutang, a teacher at Jose Rios Middle School, added, "Anything is possible and dream big because they're the only ones who can live out their dreams."
Justice Sotomayor was on Guam to speak at the District Court Conference; while here she was scheduled to meet with several non-profit organizations, tour GMH and the island's military installations. She now heads to the Saipan and then on to Hawaii.
