  • Constancia in the beginning of the story was rude to her grandma. In paragraph 2 the author states, “Connie, please be nice to Abuela”(Judith Ortiz Cofer).  As you can see Constancia doesn’t really like her grandma. Constancia is also embarrassed being with her grandma. In paragraph 11 the author states, “I just hope that nobody I know sees us together”(Judith Ortiz Cofer).  As you can see Constancia really doesn't want nobody to see her with her grandma because she will be embarrassed.
  • On the other hand, Constancia’s values also do not change throughout the story. In paragraph 5 the author states, ““No way”(Judith Ortiz Cofer). I say.” As you can see Constancia doesn't really wanna be with her grandma. Also, in paragraph 14 the author states, “I would like for her to disappear”(Judith Ortiz Cofer). As you can see Constancia doesn't like her grandma at all, she thinks her grandma is embarrassing. To sum it up, none of the characters values change throughout the story.
  • On the other hand, Constancia’s values did change at the end of the story because eventually her mom tells her something. In paragraph 19 the author states, “But I can’t bring myself to tell my mother that I think I understand how I made Abuela feel” (Judith Ortiz Cofer).As you can see, I think constancia does really know how she made abuela feel. In paragraph 21 the author states “That’s when I’m sent to my room to consider a number I hadn’t thought much about—until today”(Judith Ortiz Cofer). As you can see, Constancia values did change at the end of the story because she got in trouble for making abuela feel like a zero throughout the day. As a result, Constancia’s values did change at the end of the story
