Ketanji Brown Jackson is no stranger to people trying to stand in her way...When a guidance counselor told her she should set her sights lower than Harvard, she decided to go to Harvard for her undergraduate degree and her law degree...When she became a public defender and was confronted with systemic inequalities in the justice system, she used her legal skills to advocate for people who needed her help, but couldn?t afford an attorney...Ketanji?s path to the Supreme Court may have been unique?she?s the only current Justice to have been a public defender and one of just a few who went to public school?but it is distinctively powerful and heartening, and will present a generation of readers with a new inspirational figure.
