She has participated in several recitals and opera galas in different art centers of Colombia (including the Foyer of the Teatro Colon among others), UK and Scotland. World-famous tenor Alejandro Escobar selected Ximena to participate actively in a lecture delivered by him and in the recital held in the "Colon acustico" series Teatro Colon. Ximena was selected as a scholar for the Salvi Foundation in the Cartagena International Music Festival 2015. During her studies in Colombia, she performed extracts from Offenbach’s opera Le Contes d’Hoffmann as Olympia, Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte as the Queen of the Night, and Bernstein’s Candide as Cunegonde. In 2017, she performed as Suor Angelica in Puccini’s opera, and as Belinda in Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas for the OperaGold festival at Goldsmiths University. Also, in the same year she performed Gilda in Verdi´s Rigoletto for Clyde Opera Group in Glasgow, Scotland.
