1. Describe the setting in which Immaculee is raised in the early years of her life.
Immaculee is raised through the early years of her life in an idyllic setting: her home is large, her family's wealth is not inconsiderable by Rwandan standards, and her family is loving, nurturing, and takes significant pains to ensure the quality of her education.
2. Immaculee's Catholic faith is mentioned early and often in Left to Tell; how is she raised to perceive her faith?
Immaculee is raised to perceive her Catholic as an essential part of her life, an obligation and an opportunity; more broadly, she is raised to see it, through the actions of her parents, as a source of charity, love, and moral principles to guide oneself in action.
3. Choose one word to capture the essence of Immaculee's description of her brother Damascene, and explain why it is a fitting choice.
Perhaps the most fitting word to relate Immaculee's description of her brother Damascene is "charismatic," for she paints a picture of him that is part rogue and not lacking at all in wit but with an enormous heart.
