High School is notorious for cliques. So what if the jocks or nerds or outcasts tried to learn more about each other? In MTV's new series If You Really Knew Me (Tuesday at 11/10c), students participate in a one-day program called Challenge Day that tries to break down the walls among these different circles.

The 18-year-old, who attends Freedom High School in Oakley, Calif., talks about what she gained from participating in the series and if Challenge Day managed to ease tensions among the groups.
