At the young age of 14, Dorothy Jean Tillman, an excellent young woman, accomplished an amazing feat by receiving her master’s degree from Unity College in Maine, the United States.

Dorothy Jean Tillman, a native of Chicago, had a remarkable academic journey from the time she was a young child. She started talking at the age of eight months and learning math at the age of four.

She continued her outstanding academic career and, at the age of 14, she graduated from Unity College with a Master’s degree in environmental science and sustainable engineering, becoming one of the youngest individuals ever to do so.
