Ctc Step 4- Minerva "A young man started following us, saying Minerva was the most beautiful woman he'd ever seen ( She always getting compliments as we walked down the street)" (Alvarez 33). On the back of the book, it also mentions that they live in Dominican republic meaning she's probably Dominican. Dominican's usually have bronze-like skin or curly hair.
It originally marked the day that the three Mirabal sisters from the Dominican Republic were violently assassinated in 1960 during the Trujillo dictatorship (Rafael Trujillo 1930-1961). Description from womenandmediafa2013.blogspot.com. I searched for this on bing.com/images

CTC Step 1: "Yes, for sure, our Dede here is going to be the millionaire in the family." This quote gives us an idea of what type of character Dede is.

Ctc (Trujillo) Step 2 "What a shock then, when Minerva got handed the law degree but not the license to practice. Here we all thought El jefe had relented against our family, and let Minerva enrollin law school. But really what he was planning all along was to let her study for five whole years only to render that degree useless in the end". This piece of evidence shows you how Trujillo thinks. He planned this all out from the beginning.
Hello My Name Is Inigo Montoya - $18,99. We hate going to events that require nametags. We don't like encouraging strangers to talk to us. Plus, we always forget to take the damn thing off when we walk out of whatever it was that required the nametag, so we're headed home, stopping by the grocery store, accidentally encouraging the produce manager to address us by name. Which is just creepy..
