Helen was born in Tuscumbia, Alabama. Sadly, she lost her vision and the ability to hear. That happened due to, what people believe was, a scarlet fever. In spite the fact she couldn’t hear or see, she learned to write and communicate with people around her. Later on Helen become a major influence on the dealing and treatment of the deaf and blind people.
A highly inspirative person in my personal opinion. Just think about it, this lady couldn’t see or speak and yet she managed to get a proper education for herself and became very influential in the medicine field of treating blind and deaf people. Pretty big deal, if you ask me. There is a lot to be learned about life from her. Luckily we have a collection of her wise words.
