About Me

Hello, my name is Nicole Haskins. I am awaiting graduation as a senior Communication Studies Major at Longwood University.  I am so excited to enter into this new phase of my life.  During my time at Longwood University I have grown as a woman.  I am President of my sorority chapter on campus, the Pi Mu Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and I also serve as Vice President of the National Pan-Hellenic Council on campus.  I work as a Building Supervisor for my university and I also have served my community as a Resident Assistant and Peer Mentor, amongst other roles.  Aside from my academic and professional background I am a strong, fun, loving, compassionate and very down to earth young woman.

As a child, I was the ultimate girly girl, I LOVED Barbie dolls of all types and even collected some that I still have today!  Between the ages of about four and twelve, I played with Barbie Dolls on a daily basis.  When I played with my sisters or had friends come over for play dates, you could always be sure that we would be playing with dolls.  I had Barbie doll heads that I could use to practice doing hair or applying make-up. I had Barbie houses and cars to play house and send Barbie to work, the mall, and even on dates with her doll boyfriend, Ken.  During the new millennium I remember begging my mother to buy me the African American Millennium doll and as expensive as it was she got it, and I still have it to this day! 

It is very clear that Barbie and her friends had a huge impact on my childhood!  But, not only did I love Barbie, my friends loved Barbie’s, my mother loved Barbie’s, my teachers talked about the dolls in school and I felt like every young girl in America had at least one.  Reflecting back I don’t see the excitement in just playing make believe with a plastic representation of a girl, but as a child Barbie represented everything that I wanted to be as a woman and could even be looked as a role model…today I am almost ashamed to reveal my adoration, because as an adult I find the relationship problematic…but we will save that discussion for another day!

  1. I too played with the occasional Barbie… I must admit it. i was more destructive to them than anything else, but I loved to put different clothes on them and of course I thought she was beautiful. I was a “tom boy” so most of the time I would melt my Barbie, or pop her head off and fill it with water. It’s funny when I think about it, but I do have friends taht continue to collect Barbie Dolls until this day! It’s definitely a blast from the past! Great post Nic!
