Kenny Tedford

Kenny Tedford is like a combination of Hellen Keller and Forrest Gump. He was born deaf, partially blind, and unable to speak, like Hellen Keller. But he was also born with a significant learning disability which left him with the cognitive ability of a 10-year-old. As a result, he's one of the most charming and inspiring people you'd ever meet. Despite all those limitations, and being told he'd never finish the 3rd grade, Kenny eventually earned his high-school diploma, a B.A. in theater, and a Master's degree in storytelling, one of only 2 deaf people in the world with that degree. He's succeeded despite all of that and his story will inspire success in others.
