Who is Helen Keller?
"The public must learn that the blind man is neither genius nor a freak nor an idiot. He has a mind that can be educated, a hand which can be trained,… and it is the duty of the public to help him make the best of himself." - Helen Keller
"When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us." -Helen Keller

Helen valued education especially for those who were a minority. This included women and the disabled. She learned how to speak at the Horace Mann School for the Deaf in Boston. She learned how to speak English, French, German, Greek, and Latin. She later entered Radcliff (located in Cambridge, Massachusetts). She was the first deafblind person to enter the school.
