Perseverance- Core Values...

Perseverance is a great quality that a person can have. It is not easy to have, for it needs practice. Perseverance is being able to work hard, being patient, and working without any complaints.

There are many perseverant characters around the world. Some of them are English, and some are Arabs. Some are even in Greek Mythology, for example, Odysseus. Others are like Aisha Abdel Rahman. Others include Rafa’ah el Tahtawy. All of these people show perseverance in their own way. In the Odyssey, Odysseus is described as a perseverant man, for he overcomes all his triumphs and obstacles so he could go back to his wife Penelope. Odysseus’s various adventures as well as dangers and triumphs make him a perseverant character. He also fought the evil and the strong monsters. Although his men died, he continued and did not give up until he reached his goal, which was going back to his wife and going back to his throne. Another example of perseverance was Aisha Abdel Rahman who was an Egyptian woman from Dumyat. Her father did not allow her to complete her education, for the period she has grown through didn’t advise that the women should learn, but she loved reading and writing. She wanted to learn, but her father stubbornness was going to stop her from learning, but her perseverance and her grandfather and her mother’s perseverance made her able to convince her father. She was also able to travel to Cairo and complete he education, but she learned at home and she would go on the days of the exams. This shows how perseverant...
