Samantha Squirrell

People's Choice Award

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
My favorite time of year is summer. I enjoy the warmth of the season and the closeness of the mountains. I adore this time of year the most because I get to go hiking, camping and fishing with my friends and family.

What according to you is a true friend?
My favorite foods are sushi and calamari, one of my favorite activities is to dance. Also, I have no sense of direction when driving so I get lost very easily. Thanks to the clear blue Colorado skies and beautiful mountain ranges I will learn sense of direction as I go.

How do you handle criticism?
Montrose is my hometown, its located on the western slope of Colorado. It is home of the Black Canyon and in the valley of the San Juan Mountains. There is always something to do. I love the culture, the air is clean and the people are kind.

When was the last time you tried something new?
My worst habit is my perfectionism. Everything I do I have to do flawlessly. I always have to remind myself that it is alright if something is not exactly how I imagined it. I guess they always say nothings perfect.

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
If I could travel anywhere it would be to New Zealand. I would love to experience the beautiful landscape of rugged mountain ranges, steaming volcanoes, gorgeous beaches and lush rainforest's. The diversity of the people and animals is intriguing to me.
