If You Really Knew Me

If You Really New Me is a reality television show that tries to help kids from different backgrounds and with completely different ideas and personalities understand each other better. In high school, kids tend to break off into little groups, known as cliques. These cliques usually revolve around a certain stereotype. There could be a clique of goth kids, a group of popular jocks or a group that seems to be known as the nerds or geeks. These cliques can sometimes become all-inclusive, and it can be hard for kids to break out of the mold they are set in. It can also be difficult for kids that belong to one clique or group, or that come from a particular background, to understand the kids from another clique or background.

If You Really Knew Me tries to solve the problem of cliques and the bullying, teasing or feelings of being left out that come with them. At the beginning of each show, several kids from different groups and backgrounds are brought together. Each student then reveals something personal and important about themselves. The conversation always starts with the words
