Ziba was Soraya's housekeeper, and her story exemplefies the reasons she wants to become a teacher. The story is significant in the novel because it reminds Amir of the way he treated Hassan, how condescending he acted toward him in regard to his own literacy. The story makes Amir ashamed of his previous behavior and opens his eyes to his own inadequacies.
