Ava Mendez revealed her experience of getting harassed by her college professor during the media conference for #DoYouThinkIamSexy on September 7, 2022.

Mendez explained that she went through a difficult time in her personal life when she was in college.

“Noong college ako sa CEU, yeah sa CEU, nag-aral ako ng HRM and then mayroon isang prof na major subject ko na nagkagusto sa akin. Mayroon akong subject sa kaniya na bagsak ako na hindi ko naattendan kasi noong time na ‘yung may depression ako sa family ko, may problema kami sa financial. So ang ginagawa ko noong High School ako, nagtratrabaho ako at nag-aaral.”

She recounted her experience of getting involved with a college professor at CEU.

“So ang nangyari may gusto sa akin ‘yung prof, and then inofferan ako kung anong pwede kong gawin para makapasa ako. Sa sobrang depressed ako at wala na ako sa pag-iisip, pumayag ako doon sa sinasabi niya, once lang. Pero noong naging okay na kami, okay na relationship namin, ang nangyari, parang gustong umulit pero ako ayaw ko na kasi parang ang sakit sa akin noon. Up to now, mayroon pang kaunti, pero nakakaya ko naman itolerate.”

She expressed how her encounter led to her anxiety, noting that her involvement with the college professor was almost similar to “sexual assault.”

“Kaya isa rin sa dahilan kung bakit ako parang nagkaroon ng anxiety, depression kasi para akong na-rape. Kasi, wala akong choice, anong gusto mo papasa ka tapos may problema ka sa family mo. Parang gumaan lang ba pakiramdam ko at gumaan din ‘yung pakiramdam ng parents ko na hindi makita ‘yung card ko na may bagsak. So wala akong choice, pinatulan ko muna for months, after noon hindi ko na pinayagan, pinasumbong ko na sa dean tapos na-expel na rin siya.”

The cast includes Milana Ikimoto, Hershie De Leon, Dolly De Leon, Jojit Lorenzo, Atakstar Araña, Raul Morit, and Cecil Frio Paz.

#DoYouThinkIamSexy, directed by Dennis Marasigan, starts streaming on September 9, 2022, via Vivamax.
