Helen Keller
By Kathleen W. Redman

1     No one is exactly the same as anyone else. Every person is different in some way. Some people have funny-shaped toes or fingers. Some people have big noses while others have very small noses. Some people are very short; some are really tall. Some people are very good at math, and some people are very good readers. Unfortunately, there are people who use these differences to make fun of others.
2     Helen Keller was born in 1880. While she was an infant, she contracted a disease that left her deaf and blind. Her family went on a search to find someone who could help young Helen learn despite her handicaps. After looking for help from many people (including Alexander Graham Bell, the inventor of the telephone), they found a young teacher named Anne Sullivan. Anne taught Helen how to read, write, and cope with her deafness and blindness.
3     Despite a difficult start, Helen learned quickly and well. In 1904, when she was twenty-four, Helen became the first deaf and blind person to earn a university bachelor's degree. Helen set out to use her education to help other people who were handicapped.
