Ryan had the pleasure of attending the 2012 NCLR ALMA Awards on September 16, 2012. Since Ryan is half Cuban (his mother is Cuban), he was able to participate in this wonderful event. He was honored among several other Latino Olympians, including female boxer Marlen Esparaza, for their performances at the London games. Then Ryan had the distinct honor of presenting an award for Favorite TV Actress: Drama with Rafael Amaya. It was an experience that he thoroughly enjoyed and is looking forward to being a presenter at future awards shows. The show airs on Friday, September 21, 2012 on NBC.
