While most young girls are attending sleepovers and playing video games, Thessalonika Arzu-Embry was busy graduating high school at the age of 11.
By 14, she completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology. Home schooled by her mother from a young age, Arzu-Embry’s high IQ is only one part of her myriad of talents, she’s also determined, ambitious and curious.
Thessalonika Arzu-Embry: Ambitious and smart teenAt just 17 years old, Thessalonika Arzu-Embry is set to complete a doctorate program. She talks about how she accomplished so much in so very little time.
“I’ve been placed in a position to help society in deep ways and in as many ways as possible,” Arzu-Embry said.
Last year, at the age of 16, she received her master’s degree and now, at 17, she’s on track to complete a doctorate program this summer. Along the way she also managed to author five books covering topics from expediting the completion of college, securing justice, to financial investing. She also created a program called JUMP that helps students complete college, as quickly as possible, so they can enter society and do the most good.
“The priority is to help society and create businesses that would create more inventions and things that would strengthen the bigger part of society,” explained Arzu-Embry. “So that’s my main goal.”
