#4: Meet a woman who defies labels. Born in 1880 in Tuscumbia North Alabama, at 19 months old she contracted an unknown illness that lead her to being both blind and deaf. At the age of six, she developed her own unique sign language and by seven she had over 60 signs to communicate with those around her. She not only learned to live with what some see as a disability but she thrived, learning to interpret the world from vibrations including understanding gender by the way someone walked. She enjoyed music by feeling the beat and she had a strong connection with animals through touch. Determined to communicate she learned how to speak and went on to be the first woman to earn a bachelor’s degree. Not stopping there she became an American author, political activist, and lecturer. Meet Helen Keller who through her every day actions showed us that there is no such thing as a disability only possibility.
