Anne Sullivan

Anne Sullivan was the eldest in her poor Irish family. Her father was an alcoholic and her mother died from tuberculosis when Anne was only nine years old. When she was seven years old, she developed trachoma which lead to her becoming blind but some of her eyesight had been restored by surgery. It was difficult for her and her siblings due to their mother's death. They moved to many different places and her and her brother went to a poor house. Soon, her brother died and she went to Perkins School for the Blind because she really wanted to school and begged to go there. Later, at the age of 20, she graduated and helped Helen from that day on.

Quote

I like this quote because it says how even blind people that have no self esteem should have confidence and hold their head high. You shouldn't feel like you are really different than others and face everything that you come across in life.

Helen Keller Speaks Out

Helen Adams Keller was an author, lecturer, and activist who made a difference in the world and inspires many people. Helen Keller was born as a normal baby girl from Tuscumbia, Alabama. However, she got scarlet fever when she was only 18 months which lead to her becoming deaf and blind. Helen Keller had a hard time growing up since she would throw tantrums and get really frustrated, so her parents hired a tutor, Anne Sullivan. She taught Helen Keller how to do things on her own and believed that she should be treated like a normal person. Helen loved Anne as much as she loved her parents. Helen Keller learned how to read and write in Braille and use hand signals. She then went on to Radcliffe College which is now part of Harvard University. Many people thought that she wouldn't succeed in Radcliffe College because she was blind and deaf. Helen was the first deaf and blind person to go to college and earn a bachelor of arts degree. When she was at college in 1902, she wrote the book, "The Story of My Life", and then graduated in 1904. After graduating, Anne and John Macy got married which was one of Helen's happiest moments. Also, Helen Keller fell in love with Peter Fagan but never got to marry him. John Macy died and then Anne died some time later. Helen Keller traveled around the world to help and improve the lives of others.
