    even if everything what I did seemed useless

    He always had me struggle to the very end, even if everything what I did seemed useless

    Does the sentence above sound natural to you?
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Not a teacher nor a native speaker.

    No. I would change "what" to "that". And the sentence needs a final punctuation mark.

    I think 'that' can simply be omitted, but I am not a teacher.
