GEORGE: So, what Helen Keller has done for me is put me back on the same page that I was. So now you know, the tools are there. I could work with the iMac, the voice-over, I could understand what I’m doing. So this is where I’m at right now and it’s working. This is what Helen Keller has done for me. I received, like you know, I learned how to navigate on the road, I learned to take the subway. I would start out listening to how to walk with my cane and I think that I reached the point now where I could make a step on my own, you know? Being real independent and pursue a dream that I had. And dreams do come true.
