Growing up as a child was not the easiest thing for Helen Keller. When she was 3, she became sick and this caused her to become blind and deaf. From then on, her life was never the same. She did not let that stop her though. With the help of her teacher, Anne Sullivan, she was able to overcome many difficulties to become one of the most powerful women of today's world. She visited people from around the world, like President John F. Kennedy. She also fought for the rights of the deaf and blind. Thanks to Helen, the deaf and blind have been given much more support than they would have 50 years ago. To learn more about how Helen Keller fought for her rights and see never before seen pictures, read Helen Keller: Her Life in Pictures by George Sullivan.
