Gabriela Isler- RAB
A dynamic global humanitarian, Gabriela Isler has used her title to bring attention to important global issues around the world, especially those that involve women and children.
Gabriela Isler is rapidly becoming as well known for her humanitarian work as she is for being named Miss Universe 2013. During her reign, Gabriela traveled to communities in the Philippines devastated by Typhoon Haiyan and launched the Miss Universe Cordaid Fund. These efforts have been recognized by the Vatican and resulted in a public humanitarian blessing from Pope Francis. She has also served as a spokesperson for HIV/AIDS awareness and has spent time on Capitol Hill to support amFAR. In her role as Brand Ambassador for in/PACT (www.inpactnow.com) and in partnership with Cisneros Media, Gabriela has reached over 20 million people with the media launch of the Universe of Blessings Fund, a 501c3 organization, which seeks to empower young women and girls and decrease the rates of adolescent pregnancy and maternal mortality which are especially problematic in her native Venezuela.
Deeply concerned about the women and girls victimized by modern slavery, Gabriela has made several appearances to address the issue and moderated a panel at the United Nations exploring ways NGOs can better collaborate to combat human trafficking. As a member of the Advisory Council for The Resolution Project (http://www.resolutionproject.org/), Gabriela recently helped judge a session of Social Venture Challenges held at the United Nations which identifies and mentors young leaders engaged in social entrepreneurship. Aligned with the top priority the migrant issue has received from Pope Francis and the Vatican, Gabriela is a Global Ambassador for the Scalabrini International Migration Network. Gabriela continues to pursue her career as a model and as a television commentator and has been named as a Philanthropic Ambassador for Bally, Inc. She also serves as Global Ambassador for the Arts for Porticus (https://www.porticus.com/en/home) in their shared commitment to El Sistema, a worldwide movement for social change through the arts.
With a degree in Marketing and Business Administration, Gabriela seeks to also make a difference with her newly-formed company, Soulful Impact, LLC, where she serves as Co-Chairperson with Michael Hoffman, Co-Founder of Changing Our World (OMC: NYSE). Soulful Impact motivates its clients to identify the soulful essence of their brand and communicate this quality for optimal social and market impact. Gabriela’s powerful charisma makes her a singularly effective advocate for some of the world’s most pressing humanitarian initiatives and inspires audiences to affirm their global citizenship and strive to change the world around them.
