There are many different famous people who have persevered over the years, including Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs and Walt Disney. Einstein is perhaps the most popular because he developed the theory of General Relativity, which was a defining theory for physics and also led to the creation of the atomic bomb.
Einstein also won the Nobel Prize. Despite these successes, Einstein was unable to speak in fluid sentences until he was 9 years old and was also expelled from school.
Walt Disney also faced challenges, including going bankrupt after creating his first cartoon. However, Disney would persevere and build a global empire as well as win 22 Academy Awards while he was alive and many more after his death.
