Rajeshwari, who migrated to the US in her teens was sworn-in as a criminal court judge by Mayor Bill de Blasio, who said that Raja Rajeshwari  has, ‘ extraordinary, extraordinary empathy for others.’

The 43-year-old has previously worked with the Richmond County District Attorney’s Office for her entire career in several bureaus including Criminal Court, Narcotics, Supreme Court, and the Sex Crimes Special Victims Bureau, where she last served as Deputy Chief.

Rajeshwari was overwhelmed by her appointment and said she felt ‘honored and humbled.’

‘It’s like a dream. It’s way beyond what I imagined. For someone like me, an immigrant who comes from India, I’m beyond grateful.’ she told reporters.

Praising Rajeshwari for her ability to speak in Indian, Southeast Asian and Middle Eastern languages, Mayor Bill de Blasio said that she uses her past as an immigrant coupled with the knowledge of many languages to ‘reach the immigrants.’
