Helen Keller was the first deaf and blind person to earn a college degree. She graduated from Radcliffe College, with honors, in 1904.
Helen's goal was to keep on trying to learn how to speak in sign language. In just a few days, her teacher Anne Sullivan, taught Helen how to spell words with her hands (called the manual alphabet, which is part of the sign language that deaf people use.) Helen didn't understand what the words meant— until one morning at the water pump (like an outdoor water fountain) she tried spelling the words in the water.
