This 16-year-old Girl Just Earned a Master's Degree, Starts PhD Program This Fall

Thessalonika Arzu-Embry, a 16-year-old from Chicago earned a master's degree in strategic foresight and organizational leadership through an online program offered by Regent University in Virginia Beach, Virginia last weekend and will start a PhD program in aviation psychology this fall. In addition to all that, Thessalonika, who was home schooled and started college at age 11, has already written three books! She hopes a degree in aviation psychology will give her the knowledge to work for aviation companies and reduce what she called "human factor errors," the types of problems that can cause plane crashes. Using psychology to recognize when a pilot is agitated, is dealing with stress or is having other issues that negatively affect job performance can help a company avoid potentially deadly mistakes in the air, she said. "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. Kudos to you young lady! Kudos!
