In June 2022, Dana announced, “Hello friends and family! My daughter, R’Bonney, will be competing in the Miss Texas USA pageant on July 1-2 at the Hilton Post Oak Hotel in Houston. The final is on July 2nd at 8:00 p.m. Tickets go on sale on Monday, June 6 at 12:00 p.m. We hope to see you there so we can gather a good crowd for the final to cheer her on!

R’Bonney explained after her Miss USA win, “My dad moved to America from the Philippines on a college scholarship with about $20 in his pocket. He wanted to pave a new life for himself. He met my mom in Texas, who is a country woman from Beaumont. I’m a very proud Filipina-American.”

On 2nd July 2022, R’Bonney became the first Filipina American Miss Texas USA, making history in the process. She stated that she thought it was an honor to serve as a spokesperson for the Filipino community.

“I hope this just shows any Filipino or Asian, or anybody that doesn’t see someone like themselves in pageantry or any industry, that that doesn’t mean there’s no room for them,” R’Bonney said at the time. “You can always be the first person to do something.”

In August 2021, R’Bonney Gabriel featured her father on her IG. She wrote, “if not now, then when?” I created these shirts to inspire and motivate others to go after their dreams. My dad has always pushed me to work hard for my goals, and to not wait to take action. ✨ These shirts will be available in September on my website at @rbonneynola_design.”

In addition to pageantry, R’Bonney is currently employed as a model and designer. The University of North Texas awarded her a BFA in fashion/apparel design with a fibers minor in 2018.
