Sunny Hostin grew up well aware of her ethnicity

She was born as Asunción Cummings on October 20, 1968, in New York City, New York to Rosa Beza and William Cummings. She grew up in the Bronx where she went to the Dominican Academy. From her mother, she has Puerto Rican ancestry.

As her mother and father were from different heritages, her grandparents of both sides never accepted her parents’ relationship. Not only their family but, they were turned down several times even while trying to get an apartment in Manhattan. Eventually, her mom, who was white applied using her birth name and got the apartment for them.

Sunny Hostin is a woman with mixed heritage.

When she was 6, she saw her uncle getting stabbed and also witnessed a friend’s father's murder in front of a candy store in the Bronx. Those horrific incidents didn’t make her weak. Instead, it motivated her.

“Those incidents shaped who I am. Those experiences made me strong – there’s nothing I can’t handle. They also informed by career direction” said Hostin.

Growing up in the middle of violence but in a loving household encouraged her to pursue a law career. She attended the Binghamton University, where she studied communications on a full scholarship and later obtained her law degree from the Notre Dame Law School.
