In Highschool, Helena was very self-conscious of her hight and never enjoyed being the tall girl. She told a local newspaper, "I remember that I once bought a pair of boots that I loved, but when I had them at school I felt that everyone looked at me because I got a few inches higher. So I went home and took a kitchen knife and cut my heels off. During the competition, I learned to love my height and almost do not go to another high boots now."
