CEBU – A female college student who is in hot water because of a sex video that went viral has surfaced in public for the first time.

The student, who is reportedly a dean’s lister, has sought the assistance of lawyer Atty. Inocencio de la Cerna to ask her school to allow her to graduate this coming March.

According to the student, she and her boyfriend are victims of the proliferation of their sex video.

She said her boyfriend lost his cellphone to a pickpocket 2 years ago.

She believes that the thief was the one responsible for uploading the video on the internet.

She said she is affected by the controversy but she is carrying on, thanks to the support of her family and friends who stood by her side.

She denied reports that she attempted to commit suicide because of the shame and embarrassment.

Her lawyer, meanwhile, is confident that the school will consider the student’s request to graduate this March.

The student also asked the public not to spread her video to others and appealed to those who have copies to delete it.
