Helen Keller
Although this courageous and inspirational left-hander had to contend with being blind and deaf, it didn't stop her from achieving more than most could in a lifetime. From being the first deaf and blind person to gain a bachelor's degree to publishing 14 books, Keller exhibited faith and strength that were key to her success and still have consequences today for those with special needs.
