WASHINGTON - Arnold Schwarzenegger’s daughter is all set to leave the nest with her first book.
The 20-year-old USC Communications student has decided to use her famous name to promote the development of healthy body images in young women by writing her first book, ‘Rock What You’ve Got.’
At the same time, she also wants to prove to the world that she’s her own person, independent of her parents’ success.
“It’s definitely cool to be able to speak about something that I’m passionate about and to let people know who I am, not just the daughter of…” Fox news quoted her as telling Pop Tarts.
“The best piece of advice my parents gave me is always to be who I am and to stay true to who I am. Young girls get so lost in society today with the amount of peer pressure, pressure from the media, pressure to be something they are not. My parents always made sure to reinforce to me how important it is to stay true to your values, beliefs, and who you are, because being who you’re not is where you can get in a lot of trouble,” she added.
According to the National Eating Disorders Organization, as many as 10 million females and 1 million males in the U.S are battling a life-threatening eating disorder.
Katherine wants to help curb the number of growing epidemic.
“One of my huge goals is to make women, mothers, and daughters really aware of this issue. My second goal is for girls to stay true to who they are and be who they are and to always remember that,” she concluded. (ANI)
