biography

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.

LMAO @ Candice's reaction tonight when her new tribe told her about what Billy said at last week's tribal council. I could have sworn she did say to Billy, "I love you," but she said during tonight's show that she said, "We love you." I dunno... I think they're both whacked! :lol:

This girl is one tough tough cookie. She basically won that challenge tonight for her tribe. It took them forever to get her back across that line.

She's really smart , too. She got full scholarships to both Duke and North Carolina University. Read through her biography. She's traveled all over, worked in clinics and hospitals, got a perfect score on her Math SAT's, and she's only 24 years old.

Wow. No wonder Billy was in love with her.

I definitely thought it was I love you. Didn't she use some sign language too?

I thought they were both really really dumb to do that. I hope someone noticed. It's bound to stir things up.

I was really liking her, and still do, because she was awesome at that challenge, but if she's going to be that stupid to show her loyalties that obviously, then maybe she's not quite cut out for the game.

Ever heard of subtlety?
