in the hope of someday fulfilling her dreams.  This teenager is both a dancer and a fashionista.  A natural-born dancer, she has this special love affair with dancing – a passion that started out as a pastime with friends and schoolmates that later led her to become a member of Knight Movers, Jeddah’s leading All-Filipino dance group. At 16, Sumaya is that girl one would peg as somebody who has learned to embrace her own personal style and expresses her personality and individuality through fashion.  This Binibining Turismo Filipinas candidate was born and raised in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.  She has not since visited the Philippines but she hopes to one day have the opportunity of visiting her family’s roots in their hometown of Davao Del Sur in the southern part of the Philippines.  She is very much eager to learn more of and to experience first hand her Filipino heritage as well as the country’s culture and traditions.  Setting aside her striking physical features she also counts on her natural fierceness and confidence as an edge as she moves forward in this competition and her favorite quote is her dance group Knight Movers’ mantra – “Eyes on the sky, feet on the ground.”
