 A BOY WHO IS VERY EAGER TO LEARN a lot of things – about life, about anything.  Rayan ‘Ryan’ Maulana Maula likes elevating his knowledge status by constantly exploring.  He is an approachable, kind-hearted and a fun to hang out with kind of guy among other things.

Ryan is a senior high school student at the International Philippine School Jeddah (IPSJ) and sets his goals in becoming a successful businessman in the future.

Hitting the gym and working out, going on adventures, reading novels, and playing basketball and computer games are the things he is most passionate about.  He likes to work out a lot as he aims to become the strongest, smartest, fastest and the most handsome that he can be.  Ryan was awarded the title of ‘Mr. Junior of IPSJ’ for the school year 2014/2015.  By first impression he may be perceived as the quiet kind of person but when one gets to know him more they realize this keen-minded sixteen-year old Ginoo candidate has a lot more to say.  He considers joining Ginoong Turismo Filipinas all just for fun and even though this is his first shot he is confident in both his looks and abilities for him to be the ultimate ambassador of tourism.  Ryan also believes winning this competition will be a way of giving back – the pride and glory – to his family, the reason why he feels happy and complete and whom he respects and loves so much.
