“Literature is my utopia”-Hellen K.

Hellen Keller’s Story Of My Life had a great impact on me. You’ll never see someone with a soul as beautiful as Hellen’s soul. Every page radiated gratefulness and beauty. I didn’t read some words, I’ve seen one of the most beautiful person’s life rolling in front of my eyes.

Losing your sight and hear at a young age (she was not even 2) it truly is a tragedy but she is the one that knew how to deal with it and never feel inferior to others. She loved her life every second and tried to make the best of every moment especially after she met her teacher Miss Sullivan when she was 7.

I’ve been fascinated by Miss Sullivan’s patience to teach Hellen everything from writing to recognizing notions like love and other stuff. I can’t imagine how hard it was for her to accomplish everything.

Hellen and Miss Sullivan

Of course she had her times of loneliness and darkness but she always knew how to keep her faith in God and always look at the bright side. If you’re looking for strength to go on with your life and always get some life lessons, her biography is the book for you.

She ended up as a very respected woman and she deserved all of it from being the first deaf-blind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree to all the campaigns she attended and fought for women too. She will always be a symbol of courage, hope and strength.
