I believe that persistence is a value that defines me best right now. Fo me, persistence is such an important value to have because it enables me to set a goal and chase it. Many times in past years I've fallen short of that goal, but it is my ability to be persistent that allows me to keep pushing forward and continue to chase whatever I'm after. Persistence exemplifies dedication, determination, and passion. If there is anything I've learned in my two years of college thus far, it's that being persistent opens up opportunities that otherwise wouldn't exist. Whether it be applying for an internship or creating a new contact, persistence is always key. I've always believed that if you truly want something you need to go out and get it and that's why persistence best defines me. Regardless of the obstacles and roadblocks that are faced along the way, if you are persistent you will keep grinding until you reach your goal.
