Quotations"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much" - Helen Keller
Helen Keller was an inspiration to everyone because although she was deaf and blind, she became an author and got a bachelor's degree in the arts. She campaigned for women's suffrage also.
Helen Keller was born in Tuscumbia, Alabama. At 19 months old, she developed a sickness described as "an acute congestion of the stomach and brain." She recovered, but in the process lost her sight and hearing. A teacher named Anne Sullivan was hired to try to teach Helen to communicate. Keller made a breakthrough when she realized that the motions Sullivan was making on her hand as well as running water on them was the idea of "water". She then went on to get a bachelor's art degree and write a total of 12 books. In her later years, she suffered a series of strokes and spent the last years in her home.
