Transcript of Helen Keller-Accomplishments

Helen Keller-Accomplishments "While they were saying among themselves it cannot be done, it was done.” Helen Keller is a modern day hero, and a legend for the vision impaired, but there are many negative remarks on how Helen Keller cannot accomplish anything in her lifetime. Although, this is proved wrong by Helen as she goes from beginning to end.
It all started when Mr. and Mrs. Keller hired Annie Sullivan to teach the
seven year old Helen, who was very undisciplined. Sullivan started of by
teaching Helen different words and one day it all clicked. Next thing you
know, 1888-1998, Helen learned to read and write in Braille. Shortly after,
Helen was writing books. In 1903, she published her first book, The Story
of my Life. Helen Keller pursued her dreams, and went on to college. In 1900, Helen Keller enrolled in Radcliffe College as a regular student, although Annie Sullivan had to go with Helen for extra help. By the time Helen was 24 she had graduated with a Bachelors of Art degree. Helen was the first blind/deaf college graduate to graduate from Radcliff College. Helen not only accomplished an education but she also won a great amount of awards.
Helen Keller worked very hard in her lifetime, accomplishing many big awards. In 1955, Helen won an Oscar Award for a documentary movie made on her life. Then in 1964, she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Lyndon Johnson, one of the United States highest two civilian honors. And in 1965 she was elected to the Women's Hall of Fame at the New York World's Fair. A lot of people would say that Helen Keller made the impossible, possible.
Helen Keller was a very unique woman. Being both blind and deaf, she accomplished so many things that people would never expect. She learned how to read and write in Braille, wrote some books, graduated from college with a degree, and earned some very important awards. She was inspirational to a lot of people and has helped change our world in many ways. Helen Keller was a true hero.
