In that same year, she met Alexander Graham Bell, a speech therapist and the inventor of the telephone, and they became long life friends.

Helen prepared for being an author by writing her thoughts and what she felt when she was little and learning with Anne. She was a political activist and advocate, and a fundraiser growing up.
