Remigio Bonzon Gabriel Immigrated To Washington When He Was 19 Years Old

Remigio Bonzon Gabriel is originally from Manila, Philipines. He received his doctorate in psychology from the University of Houston.

In one of his daughter's interviews, Miss USA mentioned that her father, Remigio immigrated to Washington on a college scholarship with $20 in his pocket. 

Remigio was only 19 years old at the time, but he forged his own path through hard work and dedication. He earned a psychology doctorate from the University of Houston and later opened a car repair business.

R'Bonney, on the other hand, graduated from the University of North Texas with a bachelor's degree in fashion and a minor in textiles. She is a fashion designer of environmentally friendly clothing and a model.

She mentioned her father's combination of humor and hard work when speaking with GMAnetwork about him. He never fails to make her laugh with her gags, and he was the one who taught her the value of hard work.

He advised her to put in the utmost effort rather than the most intelligence. Her father enjoys dressing up, particularly with a nice pair of shoes. He owns 75 Nike shoes and often goes for matching sneakers with R'Bonney. 

R'Bonney considers herself fortunate to have grown up in a household with two distinct cultures, making her more inviting.

She revealed that her father's side of the family is fun to grow up with and that they enjoy karaoke, have a large, boisterous family, and eat a lot of Lechon.

On the other hand, she only gets to eat mac and cheese and mashed potatoes from her mother's family, which she considers simpler than her father's.

Her father taught her that now is the best time to pursue her goals rather than later, so she launched the "if not now, then when?" shirts in celebration of his father's birthday on November 25, 2021.
