“I’ve been really busy, I just had my first TV debut on Ireland AM. It was honestly the best,” she gushed before heading into the event.

“Muireann and Tommy just made me feel so comfortable. I’m really looking forward to working with them. I was presenting before, but moreso online, I had a gig with Maya Jama’s beauty line.”

The model was chosen to work with UK presenter Maya Jama on her skincare collection Mij Masks at the beginning of her career. This opportunity was one of her big breaks, giving her an incredibly loyal fanbase.

Katja previously told KISS Magazine how she entered a search to find new ambassadors and presenters for the brand and was of course chosen.

Speaking about landing the role she said, “So it was a call our looking for presenters, it was a competition open all over Europe. I just auditioned, it was during the time over lockdown, so I just said ‘why not?’ and I got it! Since then it’s been great and I get to interview a lot of people from the UK, UK influencers and personalities. Which is good so I can network that way but it’s just been great.”

Now she tells us about her new gig, “I am taking it to the next level, to the big screen.”

As for what she’s chatting about, she adds, “Basically it’s trends, it’s celeb news, it’s everything I love. Everything I would talk about with my sisters, it’s me talking to my sisters through a screen.”
