Ibrahim Flores, “The Swanky Big Boy”
Meet the Ginoo candidate who is undoubtedly everyone’s favorite Ginoo – from the Binibinis who adore his cute antics to the Ginoos who see him as their ‘big’ li’l bro who loves to crack jokes all the time. Ibrahim Abu AlHassan Flores stands 5 feet 10 inches tall, is a half-Filipino half-Egyptian candidate who has found it naturally easy to blend in with his co-candidates. Ibrahim who has obviously inherited the best combination of physical looks from his parents is the youngest among this year’s batch of male candidates being only 18 years old. Ginoong Turismo Filipinas 2014 is yet his first attempt at a beauty and personality competition. He shares that joining this pageant ‘is a good opportunity for him to serve as an inspiration for others that being a mixed-blood he also has the right to be in this competition’ and eventually become the face of Philippine Tourism. Oh he definitely has! By his mixed lineage and by having the facility of local language he can definitely and yes, quite easily and most effectively endorse the beauty and charm of the Philippines in this part of the globe. One of his favorite quotes that speaks of focusing on your goals – getting to the finish line – is Martin Luther King’s “If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” This Ginoo will try to keep moving forward, and that.. is towards the title of Ginoong Turismo Filipinas 2014.
