Helen Keller was born in Tuscumbia, Alabama on June 27, 1880. She got an unknown sickness when she younger, and she lost her hearing and sight because of it. It would be hard for me to walk around not seeing nothing and not hearing anything. Helen Keller was a very strong woman that learned how to succeed while being deaf and blind.
Helen Keller had a wonderful tutor named Anne Sullivan. Anne taught Helen that objects had names. Helen also learned how to spell the objects using her hand. She would write them on someones hand. She also learned how to do sign language. and read and write in Braille. She even learned how to touch someones lips, and she could understand what they are saying by their movement of their lips.
Helen Keller entered Radcliffe College. She earned her Bachelors of Art degree, and she was the first deaf and blind person to do so. She was an advocate for those in needs that had vision loss. Helen Keller joined the American Foundation for the Blind, and she worked for them over forty ears.
