She was born normal on 27th June 1880, in Tuscumbia,
Alabama. When she was 19 months old she had a severe
fever and illness which left her blind and deaf. As a
result she could not speak. Over the next five years
she was a problem child, always in uncontrollable rage
and violence. When she was seven years old her parents
sought help for the young girl. Help came in the form
of Annie Mansfield Sullivan. With love, patience, and
understanding given by Annie, the little girl gradually
awaken her intellectual faculty and was “born again”.
The stubborn, headstrong, self-willed, and almost
unmanageable child became patient, gentle and obedient.
She developed an eagerness to learn. At 16 years old
she could speak well enough to enter college, and she
later graduated from Radcliffe College.

After her graduation Helen Keller dedicated her life to
bringing messages of hope and courage to the
handicapped people everywhere. Helen Keller’s books
were translated into more than 50 languages. She
lectured in over 25 countries and raised millions of
dollars for the benefit of the blind.


The success of Helen Keller is the story of Annie
Sullivan. She was the one who believed in the hidden
potential of Helen Keller. With love, patience,
understanding and encouragement Annie Sullivan managed
to help Helen Keller awaken the sleeping giant within
her. A successful person is a person who is willing to
give of himself for the betterment of another human
being. Practice giving! Helen Keller on the other hand
had to overcome challenges to be a blessing to others.


"I know of no more encouraging fact than the
unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by
conscious endeavor."
