Laila’s personality has a lot to do with her relationship with her mother, because of her absent mother it leaves Laila to act for herself letting her become very independent at as young age. Laila’s traits can be explained through her relationships with other characters. Growing up with Mammy as a mother who is distant seems to have forcing Laila to mature.

Therefore, Laila responds to her mother's neglect with independence, as a means of hiding masking her true feelings regarding her mother. Laila may be confident and independent, however, it affects her negatively as she is constantly yearning for the love of a mother that she does not have. Her mother’s lack of interest in her life help shape Laila as a woman as she…

    In dealing with the situation regarding Maryam Adedayo and Idris Eze, you should go through the state legal system. The Nigerian federal legal system is far too secular, and will not truly be able to bring about true justice in the eyes of Allah. If we really want to interpret what it is Allah would view as justice, then this matter should be dealt with by the Islamic community, rather than the Nigerian government. Afterall, it was the prophet himself who said, “Let there be a community among…

The novel Digging to America by Anne Tyler models this concept by using food to help construct the identities and behaviours of its characters, revealing the complex tensions that exist in their interactions with one another as they try to negotiate cultural barriers…
