MIAMI – November 9, 2013 – In an evening full of emotions and glamour, Gabriela Isler from Venezuela was crowned “Miss Universe 2013” at the spectacular beauty competition held at the Moscow’s Crocus City Hall.

The new Miss Universe Gabriela Isler, was born in Valencia, Venezuela. She started flamenco dancing lessons when she was a child, but says that her “real training” began when her niece was born.
After finishing her thesis three years ago, Gabriela has regularly helped her sister take care of her daughter, and even considers herself a second mother to the child. She currently works in television, but considers motherhood the hardest profession in life.
Above all else, she values being at home, surrounded by the people she loves. Gabriela’s greatest role model is her mother because despite the diversity she and her family faced growing up, her mother stayed strong and taught her that there was always a way to make ends meet.
