Get Down With 311, Say Hello To Tony Montana’s Little Friend On The Silver Screen And Shimmer With Fuel At Trees.

The start of a new school semester is on the horizon for undergrads and graduate students alike. It’s time to start buying your new books (RIP to your bank account) and prepping for a new year of late nights and studying.

But if you need some extra motivation, then look no further than Princess Leia Organa, who as it turns out actually earned a PhD at the age of 19. The  tidbit of information was “discovered” by a Twitter user in Carolyn Cocca’s 2016 book Superwomen: Gender, Power, and Representation.
