But before she was two she lost her sight and became deaf. She was quoted saying "I feel entirely shut off from the world." She felt hopeless and she wouldn't let anyone near her untilshe got help from a teacher named Anne Sullivan. Anne Sullivan was her hero, without her help she couldn't have learned to read or write.
