To be Tenacious you have to be determined to finish something and not give up. In my opinion, it takes a lot of hard work to not give up, but through years of extracurricular activities and school, a child will become a young adult who is tenacious. I think this characteristic is important because I can become a better person and I can finish stuff early and hand it in early. When I started Tai Kwon do I was determined to get a black belt it took me 7 years to get my black belt it started to get hard during the end but I was Tenacious and I never gave up and I was able to achieve my goal and become a Black Belt. Michael Jordan was Tenacious because he didn’t make his High school basketball team but he was determined to get better at basketball and he did and now he is known has one of the best basketball players to ever play the game. Being Tenacious will help in the future because you will be determined and you won’t give up. Though I am tenacious, my past has molded me into the person I am today. Through dedication and hard work, I have become the best me I can be. Being tenacious is not an easy task, one has to work at it every day.
