Congratulations Thessalonika Arzu-Embry!

While other girls her age are navigating their freshman year of high school, Thessalonika Arzu-Embryis only one month away from receiving her bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Chicago State University, reports the Daily Herald.

The teen scholar was home-schooled from 8-11 years-old by her mother, Wonder Embry, a veteran of the United States Navy, and credits her with her academic achievement.

“My mother is a strong inspiration to my success,” said Thessalonika.

The dynamic duo are schoolmates, with the elder Embry working on her graduate degree in Clinical Psychology, and spend their days working out, studying and praying together.

“My college experience is a traditional college experience for me — it is just that I have completed it faster,” Thessalonika said. “I am very excited about joining others in having the opportunity to contribute to society in a significant way.”

Thessalonika has maintained a 3.9 GPA and serves as student senator.
