Early life[edit]

Schwarzenegger was raised in Los Angeles, California. She is the oldest child of actor and politician Arnold Schwarzenegger of Austrian descent, and Maria Shriver of Irish and German descent, a journalist and author whose mother Eunice is from the Kennedy family.[2] She has a younger sister, Christina Schwarzenegger,[3] and two younger brothers, Patrick,[4] and Christopher Schwarzenegger.[5] Through her father, she also has a half-brother, Joseph Baena.[6][7]

In May 2012, Schwarzenegger graduated with a communication degree from the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at the University of Southern California.

Career[edit]

In 2010, Schwarzenegger wrote a book entitled Rock What You've Got: Secrets to Loving Your Inner and Outer Beauty from Someone Who's Been There and Back.[10] Schwarzenegger uses the book to describe her personal journey and encourage other young women to achieve confidence and a positive self-image.[11] She had body-image issues between fourth and seventh grade, but now controls her physical and mental health with walking exercises and yoga.[12]
