Helen Keller, who became blind and deaf at 19 months old, grew up and overcame all the odds she faced. Helen Keller is considered a leader in the study of Optimism. She wrote an essay called “Three Days to See”. She discusses what it would be like if she had 3 days to see.

The essay can easily found on Google.
