Helen Keller

I truly respect Helen Keller. She was a woman who went after what she wanted, she did not let her handicap slow her down or stop her. By Helen going out and getting the education she wanted she showed many people that it could be done and she gave them the insight on how to go about doing it.

She also allowed parents to see that their children could prosper and have a full and great life no matter what obstacle stood in their way. She gave hope and strength to many families. She saw a challenge in her life and she found a way to overcome it.

A lot of progress has been made in the deaf community and it all started with the small steps of several people. I believe that Helen Keller was one of those people. She showed the world what she could achieve when some thought she would not be able to accomplish anything because she was deaf and blind. She showed people how to gain their dreams and overcome their challenges.

She opened the door to the future for vast improvements in the deaf community and for the deaf themselves. I believe that Helen Keller helped to change the world as many people know it.
