I love Helen Keller. But she was deaf and blind. I wouldn't survive that but she did.

I think that this is a great biography to read because Helen was deaf and blind but with the help of Anne Sullivan, She accomplished her life. This shows that women can do anything in life if they try, men too. So, Thank you Helen and Anne for showing that Deaf and/or blind people man or woman can accomplish anything.
