John Riyand is a bright and hard working seventeen year old from the village of Galette Chambon. He lives with his mother and brother. His father does not live with them, but he tries to support them as much as he can as a mason building houses. However, the construction business has slowed tremendously because of the latest chaos in the country. If John Riyand gets a sponsor, he will enter BGM High School in the 11th grade. John Riyand enjoys going to church and helping do work around the house. Sometimes he helps his father do mason work. His favorite subject in school is biology and when he grows up, he would like to become a doctor.
