Mak­ing it to Miss Uni­verse 2014’s top 10 and land­ing the cover of Women’s Health Latin Amer­ica are only the be­gin­ning for for­mer Miss Ar­gentina and Elite Model Man­age­ment bomb­shell Valentina Fer­rer.

Tell us about your ex­pe­ri­ence on Miss Uni­verse.

It changed my life; not only my ca­reer, but my per­sonal life. I learned that you re­ally need to be con­fi­dent. If you’re con­fi­dent in your­self and who you are, you will not only be suc­cess­ful, but you will also re­ally en­joy life.

Fa­vorite shoot to date?

The cover I shot for Harper’s Bazaar Mexico. It was a re­ally nat­u­ral shoot, and I love that.

You’re a for­mer fit­ness trainer. What’s your fa­vorite way to stay in shape?

I love to dance; I can be cook­ing or clean­ing my house and just start danc­ing! But I also love Pi­lates at Jet­set or play­ing bas­ket­ball at Flamingo Park.

Cheat meal?

The Nutella pizza at Lu­cali

(1930 Bay Road, Mi­ami Beach, 305-695-4441; lu­cali.com);

it’s amaz­ing. And some­times, when I’m hungry late at night and in my pa­ja­mas, I go to Bodega (1220 16th St., Mi­ami Beach, 305-704-2145; bode­ga­south­beach.com).

Thoughts on so­cial me­dia?

I try to be au­then­tic. I feel like if you try to be too per­fect on In­sta­gram, it’s not real.

Who in­spires you?

My fam­ily. I’m the sec­ond old­est of five sib­lings; I have two broth­ers and two sis­ters. They’re in Ar­gentina, so if I’m shoot­ing in Cen­tral or South Amer­ica, I al­ways try to fly out and see them af­ter­wards. I love them—they’re all re­ally nice, crazy peo­ple!
