A breath of fresh air, Katherine is a down-to-earth, self-starter. Her career is a testament to her resilience and strength. She reminds us that beauty is not an idea of perfection, it is not something to live up to, it is nurtured from within. Through this international campaign with L’Oreal she hopes to spread this message and inspire self-belief for youths worldwide.
