Shriver talks to Winfrey in an interview for O Magazine about making a name for herself in the world and finding her way.
I’d have to find another thing. That’s what I wrote about in the book Just Who Will You Be? I made the mistake of thinking that external accomplishments would bring me peace. I thought it was about the job or a book or making a name for myself. So many people would come up to me and say, Which Kennedy are you? At a very young age, I thought, You’re going to know which one I am. I decided that I was going to be the Kennedy who makes her own name and finds her own job and works like a dog. My comeuppance was when Arnold got elected I became the Kennedy who was married to the governor.
