Blind, Deaf, and Determined: Helen Keller’s Story Continues to Inspire!

Helen Keller lost her ability to see and hear at the age of nineteen months to an illness unknown at the time, now believed to have been scarlet fever. Growing up, Helen Keller was told that she would never amount to anything due to her disabilities but she and her teacher, Anne Sullivan, was determined to prove them wrong.

Keller then learned to read and write Braille and master sign language by using touch alone. With her ability to communicate and her lust of knowledge, Keller enrolled and graduated from Radcliffe College, with honors, in 1904. She was the first deaf-blind person to earn a college degree. After graduating, Keller continued to inspire as an author, a lecturer, and a political activist.
