Helen Keller
By: Tara B.
New Jersey, Grade 6



I nominated Helen Keller. I didn't nominate her for her disablity and I didn't nominate because she was famous. I nominated her for her courage. She was blind, deaf, and dum but she learned as well as a heathly and educated child. I bet that if she didn't have courage to learn she would of never learned anything at all. She inspires us to never give up. Also she had Ann Sulivan by her side helping her through her life. Ann Sulivan is kind of like God in a sense, helping and guiding us to a happy life. I think Helen was born blind, deaf, and dum for a reason. That reason is to show us what courage means! That's the most important reason that I nominated Helen Keller!
