Routt County Spotlight: Carly Helm


Carly Helm

Age: 16

Occupation: Student at SSHS

Place of birth: Denver

Q: When did you move to Routt County and what brought you here?

A: I moved here 12 years ago because my dad started his practice up here in Steamboat.

Q: What's the biggest risk you've taken recently?

A: I lived away from home this summer for June in Kansas City, Mo. It was a whole new place and environment in comparison to Steamboat.

Q: Describe your morning routine.

A: I roll out of bed around noon, get cute and make a plan for the day.

Q: Have you ever had a book change your life? What was it and why?

A: "The Girl with the Pearl Earring." It made me realize that I need to appreciate the things because someday everything could change and be totally different.

Q: What's the best piece of advice you've ever been given?

Always be honest even if the truth hurts.

Q: When you meet someone new, what are the first three things you tell them about yourself?

A: I'm shy at first and let them lead the conversation. When I get more comfortable, the real "jokester" comes out.

Q: If you could invite any four people over for dinner, who would they be, what would you serve and what would you talk about?

A: I would invite my family. I would have salad and baked potatoes. And we would talk about everything from classic movies such as "Caddyshack" to Tenacious D.

Q: In the Meatloaf song, "I'll do anything for love, but I won't do that." What is "that"?

A: That is something I have yet to find out.
