Xeena had a general weighted average of 92%, but she missed an activity in one of her subjects, which prevented her from being given the Latin honor of Cum Laude.

Xeena also said that she got a low score on one of her oral recitations in the same subject.

"I tried to make up for it, but I wasn't able to meet my teacher every time I went to the university," she said.

Despite these challenges, Xeena graduated with two gold sports awards.
