Perseverance: Steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.
We chose Albert Einstein because he persevered through elementary school and after that became on of the greatest scientists of all time he created and figured out many things in his life time.
He was born and lived in Germany until he was fifteen. Einstein persevered through elementary school as his teachers thought he was slow. He attended Catholic elementary and didn't do very well, he did not like to remember things and everyone thought he was an oddball. he frequently sat alone and composed small songs and hymns and performed them on his family piano. At age twelve he became obsessed with algebra.v He then taught himself calculus.
At age fifteen he was asked to leave school because he didn't do his work and was setting a bad example for the other kids. After that he went to Italy and gave up his German citizenship. He was not a citizen any where until 1901 in Swiss citizen.
He then discovered many things in math and science. For example his famous formula E=MC2.
"All of science is nothing more than refinement of everyday thinking."
"It is abhorrent to me when a fine intelligence is paired with an unsavoury character."
"God gave me the stubbornness of a mule and a fairly keen scent."
