On Saturday, Megan received her undergraduate degree in health administration from the Houston-based HBCU Texas Southern University. Megan took to Twitter to celebrate her tremendous accomplishment
“Good morning hotties !!! It’s graduation dayyyy #MeganTheeGraduate,” her tweet read.
Donned in her graduation regalia, Megan shared photos from her graduation ceremony and in another tweet, the “Savage ” rapper wrote, “When people count me out or tell me I can’t do something it only makes me go harder.”
Megan was celebrated by her fans and public officials alike including Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona, who shared a video commemorating the moment.
“You worked so hard for this,” he shared with excitement. “Texas is proud of you, the country is proud of you, the secretary is proud of you.”
Although she is one of the most successful artists in the world and dealt with the loss of her mother, Megan has always prioritized her educational goals.
In an interview with People last year, she announced her plans to impact the healthcare industry after graduation.
“I really wanted to be an administrator over a hospital, but I knew I still wanted to be Megan Thee Stallion,” she explained. “I was like, ‘What can I do?’” “I was like, ‘You know what, I’m gonna open an assisted-living facility and use the money that I make from rapping to open it. Then I’m gonna let my classmates run it.”
Also, she said that her mother was her biggest inspiration for continuing her education.
“I want my big mama to be proud,” she said. “She saw me going to school before she passed. My grandmother that’s still alive used to be a teacher, so she’s on my butt about finishing school. I’m doing it for me, but I’m also doing it for the women in my family who made me who I am today.”
In a photo she posted on Instagram, Megan captioned how much her graduation would have meant to her parents.
“ I know my parents are looking down on me so proud,” her post read. “💙 Thank you, everyone, for all the love today.
