Right. It might be interesting to imagine and recreate a conversation between Dee and her boyfriend in the car on the way to her mother and sister. How would Dee prepare Hakim for this visit?

Right. So Dee is connecting to these African tradition while disconnecting from her family and local traditions.

Funny, I get a different feeling from this sentence. I think it is saying that Dee ACTED like you can't say “no” to her, not that it never happened. So that means that she is confident and personally forceful, not that she is lucky. See what I mean?
