Thessalonika Arzu-Embry is no ordinary 16 year old. She is an astounding young women who is inspiring to many. At the young age of 11 years old she began taking college courses. By age 14 she had earned her bachelor’s degree. This year she will be completing her Master’s degree and moving on to a doctorate program. Her mother, Wonder, stated that Embry has always had a passion for learning and began when she was very young. She said that by the time she was 6 she was able to read college books and understand them.

At the age of 11 the Great Lakes, IL resident enrolled in the College of Lake County. She had been home-schooled by her mother her entire life and said that while college was a change from being home-schooled it was still an environment with endless possibilities to learn and she was loving it. Her mother was nervous to let her enter college at such a young age but she knew that if she didn’t let her she was limiting her daughter’s success. So Wonder encouraged Thessalonika and sent her out into the college world. Her IQ was measured at 199 (over 30 points higher than Stephen Hawking and Albert Einsten). She has had no trouble at all with the college-level work and it shows.

Thessalonika moved from the College of Lake County to Chicago University and then on to Thomas Edison State College where she earned her bachelor’s in psychology. From there she enrolled in Regent University located in Virginia. She took online courses as well as courses in the classroom. This summer she graduates with her master’s degree in organizational leadership and strategic foresight. She is not stopping there however! Thessalonika will be moving on to obtaining her doctorate in aviation psychology.
