Katherine Schwarzenegger has stepped out of the shadows of her famous parents, Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger, and into the spotlight. She's making a name for herself as an activist and author of "I Just Graduated…Now What?" to help guide recent college graduates transition from university life to launching a career. Katherine credits her mom and dad for passing along many life lessons, such as trusting her gut, reaching for the stars, and pressing the pause button. By interviewing a long list of successful people, she's also gathered valuable wisdom to accept failure and pave her own path. As Katherine finds her own way, she advises other 20-somethings fresh out of college to pursue their passion so it never really feels like work. Katherine's book, "I Just Graduated…Now What?," is available now. Follow her on Twitter @kschwarzenegger and visit katherineschwarzenegger.com.
