When asked about her Beauty with a Purpose Project, Katherine stated, “With the help of the American Association of People with Disabilities and as Miss New York World, I plan to improve the educational lives of children with learning disabilities and special needs through tutoring, mentoring, as well as bringing awareness to the cause. I believe every child not only has the right to learn but do so in a positive and supportive environment.”
