Asked what she learned from joining Miss Intercontinental 2017, Katarina’s poise and confidence stood out as she replied:

“The most important thing that I have learned in joining Miss Intercontinental is an Arabic word named after one of the Sunrise Resorts and that is Meraki. It means to do all things with passion, soul, and creativity. When I heard this word and its definition, it resonated with me ’til now and I think it will for the rest of my life. Therefore, that is the most important thing I learned while participating at Miss Intercontinental. “That is to do all things with soul, passion, and creativity.”
