Michelle Ward, a sophomore psychology major, speaks casually about sex. She’s not afraid of her sexuality. Growing up and going to Catholic school since her formative years, Ward was taught that sex is “debauched,” dirty, inappropriate for young ladies.

“Your sexuality is a gift and as long as you use it in a healthy, responsible way, there’s nothing dirty about it,” Ward said.

Ward appeared in an episode of MTV’s “Fight For Your Rights,” which aired Tuesday, April 29 at 10p.m.

“Fight For Your Rights” takes on issues affecting young people, soliciting response from viewers and celebrities alike. Ward’s episode, entitled “Breaking the Mold,” is centered around gender stereotypes and sexuality.

Ward applied to an open casting call at in October and was soon scheduled to be filmed. An MTV camera crew was originally going to come to Cabrini to film Ward, but college officials were not comfortable with the legality of the visit. The crew filmed three days of material at Ward’s home in Delaware.

“Watching it was a surprise because I didn’t know how they were going to do it,” Ward said.

The episode of “Fight For Your Rights” with Ward’s response will be aired again Friday, May 2 at 8 a.m and Sunday, May 4 at 7 a.m.
