Thessalonika Arzu-Embry is making waves at only 16, as she excels at her education way beyond most girls her age. The Illinois girl who lives with her family at Great Lakes Naval Station is just 16 and already has a masters degree.

She entered college at 11 and will be starting her Ph.D program in the fall. What is she studying? She will study Aviation Psychology.

I feel honored for the opportunity to help others at an early age. I feel very glad to enter college and help people, she said

Oh and as a plus, she has also already written three books!
