Katarina is not a newbie to pageantry as she competed at Miss Minnesota Teen USA 2020 and finished as second runner-up behind first runner-up Madison Birk and titleholder Gwendolyn Buchanan. After being crowned as Miss Minnesota USA 2021, she had some advice for the aspiring beauty queens, "It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and I honestly encourage every young woman to get out there and try it. Please do it because this is only my second year competing and miracles do happen."

Katarina is a focused, dedicated, and confident individual who will now start her preparations for the finale and is looking forward to representing the USA at Miss Universe 2021.
