Freshman year at SWAU, "my relationship ended as quickly as it began. I remember crying myself to sleep at night, wondering why I wasn't enough for him. Though it was painful at the time, this situation pushed me to go out, meet new people and create meaningful relationships with the people around me..." During Freshman year, Xyza joined a small group called First Light. The love of Christ through His words and the people she encountered in the small group moved her to become a leader for First Light in her Sophomore year. Xyza is currently a Junior business major at SWAU. She is also the Financial VP for Student Association.
