When the memoir begins, Adeline is only four years old. She had just won a gold medal for being the best student of the week. Her Aunt Baba is extremely proud of her accomplishment even though she cannot read the certificate. Because of this, we see that Adeline may be the first generation of women in her family to attend school.
