Gabriel’s Title Winning Answer

Beauty with brains can be considered as a basic requirement to enter a prestigious pageant such as Miss Universe. But it is only the ability to stand out from others that makes you the winner. This was totally the case with R’Bonney Gabriel and it was not just her beauty or brains but her heart-winning answer to the final question that sealed her fate as Miss Universe 2022. the question that the panel of judges asked Miss USA 2022 was- “If you win Miss Universe, how will you work to demonstrate this is an empowering and progressive organization?”

To this question, her reply was this- “Well, I would use it to be a transformational leader. As a very passionate designer, having been sewing for 13 years, I use fashion as a force for good. 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 in other people in our life, we transform them, and we use that as a vehicle for change.” Check: Miss Universe GK Quiz
