Robbed of three of her five senses at a young age, Helen Keller worked as a crusader for the education of the deaf and blind, and helped disabled people around the world find hope. At 19 months old, Keller suddenly lost her ability to see and hear, leaving her deaf, dumb, and mute. She was left to live in darkness and silence until a young teacher named Anne Sullivan used groundbreaking methods to teach Keller not only how to read and write, but even how to speak. An intelligent young woman, she was the first deaf-blind person to graduate from college. This miraculous woman's life became a symbol of triumph over adversity, and her story stands as a testament to the idea that any obstacle can be overcome.
