Helen Keller

When I first became interested in sign language I decided to read Helen Keller’s biography, The Story Of My Life. I had heard of her, but I didn’t really know anything about her, other than her name and the fact that she was deaf and blind. When I finished reading I was completely amazed. It was so awesome to read about her perceptions of the world. It was especially touching when Helen wrote about the blind children that she visited with Anne, those parts were my favorites. Her story is so inspirational and beautiful. After reading it I realized that I wanted to learn sign language. Someday I hope to either teach deaf children or become an interpreter. Your website has helped me a lot, and I appreciate all of the effort and work that you all put into it. I’m learning so much and I’m really enjoying the lessons.
