Allow This Little Debater To Give You A Lesson In Persistence

She's not backing down.

This little girl's persistence is admirable and adorable.

In a video posted by Nailah Ellis-Brown on Facebook on May 25, a little girl is adamant that her way of counting to five is correct -- even if that means five comes right after three. The video was also posted on YouTube by Ellis Island Tea, where Ellis-Brown is the CEO. According to its description, the tiny debater is her 2-year-old daughter named Aaliyah and the toddler's debating partner is her schoolteacher dad, Rob.

In a little over a week, the video has racked up more than 2.5 million hits on Facebook. The toddler eventually learns that four comes right before five, but hey, you have to admire her "never back down" attitude.
