Katherine Schwarzenegger

on November 26, 2010
Katherine Schwarzenegger is the eldest daughter of former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and former First Lady Maria Shriver.

The 21-year-old University of Southern California student is enjoying a career as a best-selling author and popular public speaker on social issues.

Following in the footsteps of her mother, who is the author of six best-sellers, Katherine Schwarzenegger has authored Rock What You've Got: Secrets to Loving Your Inner and Outer Beauty from Someone Who's Been There and Back.

In her book, the young Los Angeles native and USC Communications/Gender Studies major speaks candidly about the struggle to develop a healthy body image in our body-conscious society and the confidence it takes for young women to celebrate exactly who they are.

Schwarzenegger inspires young women to recognize their true self worth. In her book, she guides young girls through their insecure teens into womanhood and encourages them to love their bodies, love themselves, and stay healthy.

Katherine Schwarzenegger was raised in a famous family by beautiful and accomplished parents who value public service. You might say that Katherine's desire to publicly address social issues is in her blood.

Katherine Eunice Schwarzenegger was born on December 13, 1989 in Los Angeles, middle-named after her maternal grandmother, the legendary Eunice Kennedy Shriver.

As a Schwarzenegger, a Shriver, and a Kennedy, the socially-aware author is quite comfortable as a public personality and role model. She currently expresses an interest in a television career, which she will certainly excel at.

Katherine is also active in raising awareness of maternal mortality. She created the fashionable VIDA Bags to increase awareness for the worldwide issue and partnered with the White Ribbon Alliance and CARE to lessen the shocking global number of mothers dying during pregnancy and at childbirth.

Katherine Schwarzenegger is a writer for various outlets about women activists in Africa and the U.S.

Katherine Schwarzenegger is as intensely interested in women's issues as her mother, Maria Shriver, who is a well-known leader in the women's empowerment arena.

It is a pleasure for the #1 California blog to publicize the aims and accomplishments of a great young woman who represents the next generation of California leadership very effectively.

All are encouraged to be encouraged by a great book, Rock What You've Got: Secrets to Loving Your Inner and Outer Beauty from Someone Who's Been There and Back by a talented author, Katherine Schwarzenegger.
