Anne Sullivan was Helen’s inspiration. She inspired her to help people that were blind like her. Anne Sullivan worked with Helen Keller because when Helen was a little kid, she was quite stubborn, so her parents called Anne to help Helen. LEV PROTRYAGIN was like Helen Keller because he was also blind but that didn’t stop him from helping his family. When Helen Died, she hoped that other people like her will get the same help that she got, and she hope the books she wrote will help people all over the world.
Helen Keller inspires me because she helped people in need, so I want to help people in need. One of my habits is helping people so when I grow up, I want to work at a business that helps children in hospitals. My three habits is writing stories for the people that are blind, helping people in my school and teaching people things that they didn’t know.
Helen Keller inspired me to help people because she was deaf, blind but she still helped people like her. I help people in need like when Helen Keller helped deaf and blind people like her. To work hard whatever I do to, sur pass any fear or difficulties. When I graduate in 2025, I want to make my family and friends proud of me like how Helen Keller did.
