She also stressed that “we should utilize our freedom of speech on the topic of politics.” Katarina also added, “If you have nothing nice to say, then say nothing!”
In the end, the beauty queen emphasized that we should always respect one another. “Debating is fun until disrespect comes into play and bashing is never okay,” wrote Katarina.
