11-Year-Old Girl Becomes Youngest Graduate of Irvine Valley College


An 11-year-old California girl has shattered the previous record for the youngest student to graduate from Irvine Valley College — a feat accomplished merely a year after her older brother set the standard.

After proudly receiving her Liberal Arts associate’s degree, she lightheartedly told the press, “I’m really, really happy and excited because I got to beat my brother’s record.”

According to the latest Elling graduate, her brother Tycho has been “chill” about the situation.

“I don’t think he cares that much,” Athena commented with a smile.

The ambitious siblings’ mother, Christina Chow, explained she never pushed her kids to attend college at such a young age. They simply have a passion for learning.

Besides her academic pursuits, Athena has already embarked on a modeling campaign, plays the guitar, sings, dances, and boasts a second-degree black belt in taekwondo.

“I really want to be an actress or maybe a divorce attorney, [or] an allergist, because I myself have allergies and eczema,” she shared with reporters when asked about her future career ambitions.

Whatever path she chooses, Athena will always carry the confidence and experience gained from achieving such an impressive milestone at a remarkably young age.
