Katya Shchekina is a Russian model. She walked for Victoria’s Secret. She retired after marrying.

Her father is of Russian descent and her mother is of Hungarian and Komi ancestry. The Komi are a Permian (Finnic) people, from the north-east of European Russia, around the basins of the Vychegda, Pechora, and Kama rivers.

Katja has been sometimes rumoured to be of half Somali descent. This is not correct.
