Helen Keller was born on June 27, 1880, in Tuscumbia, Alabama, the U.S. She was an American Author, Advocate, Lecturer, and Political Activist. Keller was adversely affected by an illness that left her blind and deaf. When she was 6, she was examined by Alexander Graham Bell, who sent her to a 20-year-old teacher, Anne Sullivan (Macy) from Perkins Institute of Blinds in Boston. Sullivan taught Keller language, reading, and writing. After studying at both specialist and mainstream schools, Keller went to Radcliff College of Harward University and became the first deaf and blind person to get a bachelor’s Degree in Arts.
The early life of Hellen
In the beginning, Keller’s life was as beautiful and innocent as some other children. But her life took a turn and at the age of 19 months, she developed an illness that left her with blindness and deafness. Naturally, Helen’s parents were concerned for her future. As she grew into a young girl, she became increasingly frustrated with her inability to communicate.
In 1887, Anne Sullivan met Helen and her family. Anne Sullivan was a determined, young teacher who had lived with blindness herself until undergoing successful surgery. Anne taught Helen proper behavior in everyday situations along with academic lessons. After some time, Anne began to teach Helen the alphabet by fingerspelling the sign language letters into her palm. Soon, Helen learned to read Braille, write, and even started trying to speak.
Helen Keller had aspirations of going to college. In 1900, accompanied by Anne, she went to Radcliff College and in 1904, she got a bachelor’s degree in Arts.
After leaving Radcliffe, Helen Keller spent the rest of her life working for blind and deaf people all over the world. She devoted her life to the betterment of specially able persons in the world .she inspires us to accept all challenges in life.
