Helen Keller was surely a strong woman and a woman each of us need to reflect on when we feel that life is tough. She was a miracle maker herself.  I've enjoyed learning about her for my 5th grade report.

I have always looked up to Helen Keller. I always admired her bold and determined personality. Many obstacles stood in her way, but she fought and finally passed through all of them. After reading her autobiography, all of my life's obstacles seem nothing, compared to Helen Keller.

This autobiography utterly inspired me. Helen Keller was an extraordinary woman who I looked up to as a role model. Despite the fact that she lost her sight, speech, and ability to hear as a toddler, she overcame all limitation and obstacles and became a successful writer. With her story in mind, all of my life challenges seem much more managable.
