"Congrats to my beautiful and brilliant daughter Katherine for receiving the GirlPower Award from A Place Called Home," proud mom Maria Shriver tweeted Thursday.

Last year, Katherine penned the book Rock What You've Got: Secrets to Loving Your Inner and Outer Beauty from Someone Who's Been There and Back. The book chronicles Katherine's personal struggle to develop a healthy body image.

Last week, as her family scandal made headlines worldwide, she tweeted: "This is definitely not easy, but I appreciate your love and support as I begin to heal and move forward in life. I will always love my family."

"As my healing begins after this crazy week, I ask for privacy," she added Sunday afternoon. "This is only the business of my family and please respect that!"
