Liz Lee stars in the MTV reality show/ docu-drama My Life As Liz that chronicles her awkward high school experience in her hometown of Burleson, Texas. The show actually began as a spin-off of another MTV show, The Paper. But when MTV crews came to Liz's video journalism class, they decided to make the show all about her.

And in a really brave move, Liz agreed to let camera's document her senior year, a decision she confessed 'sucked' during the Valentine's Day episode when she was sent carnations by a mean girl classmate pretending to be Liz's secret crush. Liz went to the school's Valentine's dance only to be stood up by her imaginary admirer.

Liz is now in college where she's listening to a lot of Animal Collective and eating lots and lots of pizza. "I'm like a ninja turtle when it comes to pizza," she told us on the phone recently. Finally done with high school, she has some pretty good advice for teens who are just starting their freshman year.

"Just basically be yourself," she says. "I started high school trying to be someone else. I think that's kind of what high school is about -- figuring out who you are. And once you do, it gets a little easier."

The show airs Mondays on MTV at 10:30 PM ET. Check out clips from our interview below.
