On the 3rd day of Filipino American History Month, Miss Texas R'Bonney Gabriel made Fil-Ams proud as she was crowned Miss USA 2022 on Monday, Oct. 3.

Gabriel, a 28-year-old eco-friendly clothing designer and model, was named this year’s . She will go on to represent the United States in the pageant in Jan. 14, 2023 in New Orleans.

During the state costume contest on Sunday, Gabriel donned a blue and crystal-covered outfit — to represent the bluebonnet, Texas’ state flower — made by Filipino designer Patrick Isorena. Her interview outfit also paid tribute to her parents, who got married in Manila, and the traditional Maria Clara collar design.

“I feel at peace knowing I have put in the work to develop into the truest form of myself. I’ve learned the importance of embracing who I am,” Gabriel wrote on instagram. “I’m here to represent Texans, Filipina Americans, and those who push past self doubt to reach their greatest potential.”

The titleholder previously made history when she became the first and Fil-Am to earn the Miss Texas USA title.

In an interview with ABC News, Gabriel shared that her father moved to the US from the Philippines on a college scholarship and met her mother, who is from Beaumont, Texas.

In addition to Gabriel, there’s another Pinay Texan to look out for: Miss Texas America Averie Bishop who will compete in the Miss America pageant later this year. | Photos courtesy of / Instagram
