Walt Disney Perseverance Description
Young Walt grew up in a strict household accompanied by a rough childhood. He and his siblings never had toys, and they never had any games. Walt also did not have a very good education, he basically didn't have much of a childhood. Sometimes, their father punished them with a belt. He had a dark past, but that may have influenced him to make children's entertainment as he grew older.
Disney also had many other adversities, including his workers going on strike against him. Also, some of his workers did not like him because of Walt's over-working and perfectionist personality. In result to this, Walt suffered a few nervous breakdowns throughout his life before he died in 1966.
In conclusion, Walt Disney fought through many adversities in his life. They were rough and they broke him down. Still, despite opposition and these adversities, Disney still pulled trough to become one of the most successful and famous people today.
