5 Things About Me: Morgan Pearson

  1. I have been watching this season of The Bachelorette. I was on team Chad from episode one (before it was cool!)
  2. I am currently working as a lifeguard on the Jersey Shore, which I believe means there will be three Jersey Shore guards in the race.
  3. I have three brothers and the younger two are twins, which makes me the middle child .
  4. I had a pet caterpillar named Dennis.
  5. I wrote a novel when I was in 1st grade. (not published)

North Carolina connection?
My biggest NC connection is to Duke University. Both of my parents, and my older brother graduated from Duke. Even I attended for a year, before transferring to the University of Colorado. My little brother is there now and a member of the swim team, so I am still a fan! Booo UNC.
