Dear all,

Can I say, I could not make this happen "as" I tried to convince them to work hard.

Can I use "as" here?

thank you

Not a teacher.
In my dictionary, one of the synonym of the conjunction 'as' is 'though' when it is used to say that in spite of sth being true, what follows is also true, so I think you could use 'as' but 'although' is more suitable.

I don't know what the sentence is trying to say.
