TOPPENISH, Wash. (AP) — A high school student who faked her pregnancy for six months as a social experiment stunned a student assembly by taking off the belly bundle.

Only a handful of people knew that 17-year-old Gaby Rodriguez wasn't really pregnant. It was all part of a senior project on stereotyping.

At a school assembly this week, Rodriguez asked several students and teachers to read some of the things people said about her during the course of her experiment. One quote said her attitude was changing, and that she was annoying.

Then Rodriguez admitted she wasn't really pregnant, a revelation that was met by gasps. Other students said they admired her courage.
