In my industry, I'm cutting down on pollution through recycled materials when I make my clothing. I teach sewing classes to women that have survived from human trafficking and domestic violence. And I say that because it is so important to invest in others, invest in our community, and use your unique talent to make a difference. We all have something special, and when we plant those seeds ... other people in our life, we transform them, and we use that as a vehicle for change.

71ST Miss Universe 2022 Contestant's Statement

Today feels surreal. Today is the Miss Universe Finals. There has been so much prepration and work that has gone into getting to this point. I have worked non stop for the last 3 years to have an opportunity like this. I first started to pursue this goal when I had a strong intuition telling me I needed to go for it. I’m so glad I listened, because this road has lead me to a place where I feel fully aligned with myself and purpose to help impact others.

I hope my journey has changed the way you perceive your goals. We can optimize our life by starting with belief. Because a single positive belief can become a vehicle for change that moves you forward to wherever you want to be.

Here’s to 2023 and taking action on thoughts, goals, and dreams.

R’Bonney is an eco-friendly fashion designer, model, and sewing instructor with an excitement for life.

Within the “MAKR” program, she teaches sewing classes to women that have survived human trafficking and domestic violence.

As the first Filipino-American to win Miss USA, she shares the importance of embracing your culture.

The more her fans learn about R’Bonney, the more they discover her strengths as a Renaissance woman: eco-friendly fashion designer, sewing instructor for domestic violence survivors, artist helping women learn tools for success, advocate for sustainability in the fashion industry.

R’Bonney’s belief that people should get to explore an abundance of opportunities in order to find their purpose and passion hearkens back to her own experience, as a high-school volleyball player who pivoted to fashion when she started sewing at age 15 and fell in love with constructing things with fabrics and textiles. At the University of North Texas, she earned a degree in fashion design with a minor in fibers in 2018. Next, she enjoyed an internship with fashion designer Nicole Miller in New York City.

For the past three years, R’Bonney has worked at the nonprofit design house Magpies & Peacocks, which collects discarded materials and upcycles them into new collections.

She modeled for six years before discovering the opportunities afforded by the Miss Universe Organization. In 2021, her first year at Miss Texas USA, R’Bonney placed as first runner-up, then she returned in 2022 with the mindset of outcompeting everyone else, and her dedication paid off.

Next, R'Bonney Gabriel Nola represented the Lone Star State at the upcoming Miss USA Pageant and now emerged WINNER Miss USA 2022 to compete as USA Representative in Miss Universe 2022 Arena.

Meanwhile, her fundamental focus of honoring her talents by “giving back” remains true; it’s just that winning Miss Texas USA has made her classroom bigger and more glamorous. At and Instagram: @rbonneynola, followers can learn a book’s worth by seeing, for example, how she ripped up a coat she found at a thrift store and whipped up her dress for the pageant’s opening number. She also designed and crafted her interview outfit and rehearsal wardrobe. For evening gown competition, she wore a stunning, hand beaded creation by Filipino fashion designer Rian Fernandez.

Away from the spotlight, R’Bonney loves to hula hoop, backpack and read, especially the writings of motivational speaker Les Brown, who authored her favorite quote, “Don’t let someone else’s opinion of you become your reality.” Source
