Helen Adams Keller
When Helen Adams Keller was nineteen months old, she fell ill. Thus became both blind and deaf.
By the assistance and training of Anne Sullivan and Michael Anagnos, a "miracle" occurred that she graduated from Radcliffe College who was the first deafblind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree. Afterwards, she contributed her life in the public works until she died peacefully in her sleep.
We could find many vitality and meaningful essays even her legacy in Helen's books. Her first book "The Story of My Life" which was published in 1903. The others just like"The World I Live In", "Out of the Dark "(1913),"Teacher", "The Unconquered " and "To Love This Life ".
"The public must learn that the blind man is neither genius nor a freak nor an idiot. He has a mind that can be educated, a hand which can be trained, ambitions which it is right for him to strive to realise, and it is the duty of the public to help him make the best of himself so that he can win light through work."
