Name: Carolyn Hardin
Birth Date: April 5, 1987
Hometown: Durham, NC
School: Duke University
Year: Sophomore

1. In 10 years, I'll likely be: A doctor

2. Why I love Duke: My family has been attending Duke since the 1920s, so I am the fourth generation to be here. Since I have lived in Durham my whole life, and have grown up with many avid Duke fans in my family, it has always been my dream school.

3. Movies I can't live without: Grease, Legally Blonde

4. Music I can't live without: Country (especially Shania Twain), Pop (especially The Pussycat Dolls), and I like just about any Rap song with a good hook

5. Best place you can take me on a date: Maggiano's is incredible- I can't live without pasta.

6. One misconception about cheerleaders: A lot of people think that we are dumb -- and most of the girls I cheered with in middle and high school were -- but at Duke it is totally different. I can practically guarantee that our cheerleading squad has the highest GPA of any Duke varsity sport.

7. My favorite sport is: Football - I just think that guys in huge bulky pads are adorable.

8. My favorite teams are: I know this must be cliché, but the only team I care at all about is Duke.

9. I like to spend my weekends: Going out with my amazing friends. We have such a blast together and can usually be found at Shooter's or George's.

10. Strange and unusual fact about me: I am a wedding singer - not the cheesy kind like in the movie though. I sing during the actual wedding service, songs like Ave Maria or The Lord's Prayer.

11. My friends would be surprised to know that I: Really love musical theatre. During this summer when my friends were back at home, I played Cinderella in the North Carolina Kid's Theatre production of Into the Woods. Next year, I hope to perform with the North Carolina Theatre company.

12. If I Had More Time I Would: Spend more time at home with my family- they are the best!

13. Favorite Foods: Pasta, the fruit and yogurt parfaits at Alpine Bagels, anything my Grandma Nana cooks

14. Five People I'd Like To Have Dinner With (Living or Dead): Grace Kelly, Prince William, Carrie Underwood, Oprah, and definitely Channing Tatum

15. Favorite Activity: Laughing

16. Next Risk I Want To Take: Riding the mechanical bull at Shooter's

17. Every Woman Should Have: A really attractive personal masseuse

18. Places I Want To Visit And Why: A tropical rainforest - to see first-hand the amazing biodiversity. Second is the Great Barrier Reef - I would really love to go scuba diving there someday

19. Typical Day: Breakfast at Alpine Bagels (always oatmeal and a fruit and yogurt parfait), classes in the morning, lunch somewhere on West Campus, a shift at the Iron Dukes office, either cheerleading practice or a run/lift session in the early evening, dinner with my best friends at The Loop or Great Hall, homework, sleep!

20. Perfect Date: For me, a nice dinner with a flowing conversation is ideal. I never have time to watch TV during the week, so I always appreciate seeing a good movie. Then, if I am so inclined, I love to cuddle!
