The determination she had in her was strong and she was dedicated to her work and helping Babbage create something that can change history. Ada was intelligent as she was growing up but because she never saw her father and her mother was vicious to her, this may be what lead her to have such a strong desire for knowledge. She strived so hard to learn so that she could become a wiser woman. Then she finally found the one person she looked up to the most, which was Charles Babbage.

Instead of just observing, Ada knew exactly what it took to help Babbage complete the machine and it surprised the others that she knew what she was doing. The hard work and dedication she put into her work and her satisfying condition motivated her to create the most useful system in the programming language which gave her the advantage to succeed as a woman in a male dominated field.
