Just to share a motivational story related to Maths and Perseverance:
Dr Yeo Sze Ling is sincerely a good example of perseverance for all Maths students. Being blind from childhood, she has studied Maths and persevered through all the way.

But perhaps the most memorable moment of all was when Lee became visibly emotional after sharing the heartwarming success story of visually handicapped A-star researcher Dr Yeo Sze Ling.
“Sze Ling proves that you can do well if you try hard, no matter what your circumstances, and that is also how we can contribute back to society, to keep the system fair for all,” said Lee, who then visibly teared and choked up, but quickly composed himself.
PM Lee was emphasising the importance of meritocracy in Singapore’s education system, which he acknowledged needed more changes — for example, it can be more holistic and less competitive.
