    Candice - Cook Islands



    23
    Fayetteville
    Pre-med student

    Candice Woodcock was born and raised in Fayetteville, North Carolina. She graduated from Terry Sanford High School where she was president of her class and captain of the soccer and cross country teams. She received a perfect score on the math portion of her SATs.

    Woodcock won full merit scholarships to both the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Duke University. She accepted the Morehead Scholarship to attend UNC-Chapel Hill and eventually received her Bachelor of Science Degree in biology and psychology with a minor in chemistry.

    SURVIVOR: AFRICA inspired Woodcock to do service work in Africa. Following her freshman year of college, she spent 10 and a half weeks living in a mud hut with a tribal family in the western highlands of Kenya. She taught primary and secondary school in the village and designed her own service project where she ran a clinic that distributed over 700 pairs of eyeglasses that had been donated by parties in the United States. Inspired by her work in Kenya, Woodcock became the fundraising director and then executive director of Students for Students International, a completely student-run, non-profit organization at UNC-Chapel Hill that gives scholarships to students in Zimbabwe and Tanzania. Woodcock also spent a summer studying health care in Chile and Peru and another summer splitting her time between work at the Cancer Clinic at George Washington University Hospital and La Clinica del Pueblo, a free Latino clinic in Washington, D.C.

    After graduation, Woodcock decided to take a year off before continuing her studies. She worked full-time for six months as an Assistant Director of Clinical Trials and as a Director of External Practice Development for an ophthalmology practice, and then part-time for the following six months. She has just begun graduate school at Georgetown University to attain a Master's Degree in physiology and biophysics. She then plans to attend medical school. She hopes to use her medical degree to do service work in developing countries and also in underserved areas of the U.S.

    Woodcock enjoys spending time with her family and friends, working out, playing sports, being in the water and playing with her dog, Louis James.

    Woodcock currently resides in Washington, D.C. Her birth date is November 12, 1982

    She has a huge heart, which could be to her detriment in a game like Survivor. However, her actual experiece living in primitive conditions could be beneficial. She's also pretty cute.

    She sounds like she could go far. She has some athletic background and lots of mental achievements.

    I can totally see her doing very well- she can probably get along with all types of people, and she's had real-life experience living in less than luxury. Of course, I also had pegged Tina as going to the final four last year...

    Call me soft, but I hope she goes far. Too often the people with an actual set of morals are given the boot. I did some international volunteer work recently too (nothing like Africa, though) so I kind of know what she has been through. So props to her.

    It looks like I'm going to have to root for the hometown again this year

    I'm really ashamed of myself... I clicked on this link, saw the photo, and immediately thought, "Well, the producers obviously picked this one to be the eye candy for male viewers..." And then I read her bio. Wow... I'm a real schmuck. I hope she does really well...especially since I am sick and tired of seeing all these actors/actresses/Hollywood-wannabes that they've cast this time around.
