Helen Keller

Inspiring Professional Women

Helen Keller was an American author, political activist and lecturer. She was born in 1880 and died in 1968 aged 87. She was deaf blind – she lost her sight and hearing at a young age, but refused to live like an invalid. Her teacher Anne Sullivan helped her to blossom by teaching her how to communicate so she was no longer locked in a silent world. She campaigned for many topics including women’s rights, was a prolific author and spoke her mind. Her attitude, determination and courage were inspiring. Quotes attributed to Helen Keller include: “Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing,” “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart” and “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”
