Megan Thee Stallion is officially a hot girl graduate! That’s right, after a bit of a rocky ride, the grammy-winning rapper put some work in and finally graduated from Texas Southern University with a bachelor’s degree in health administration.
While it’s been known that the rapper would be graduating from TSU since October, she did not walk across the stage until today. Recently, she took to Twitter to explain the ups and downs of her college experience:
“My college experience has been a roller coaster!,” she said. “I started at PV went to some community colleges in between and I’m ending at TSU. Don’t get discouraged! You can chase your dreams and your education at the same time.”
Ahead of graduation, Thee Stallion has been through her fair share of successes and advertisties. From losing her mother in 2019 to racking up two Grammy’s and securing multimillion dollar deals with companies such as Popeyes and Cash App, the “Hot Girl Summer” rapper has managed to successfully handle it all like the boss she is.
It’s no surprise that Meg was named Glamour’s Woman of the Year for 2021. During her speech at the magazine’s official Woman of the Year ceremony, she took time out to honor her late mother, Holly Thomas:
“I want to thank my mom because she taught me how to be the woman that I am. She was my best friend, my manager, she was my everything, and I know she’s proud of me today,” she said. “She was like, ‘Megan I don’t give a damn how many songs you write as long as you get that degree,’.” So, I said, ‘You know what, I don’t give a damn how many songs I write, I’m going to stay in school because I know my mom and my big momma are watching me and that’s what they would want me to do.’”
In case you’re wondering why a millionaire would go to college, Megan plans to use her degree in health administration to open up assisted-living facilities in Houston—specifically hiring fellow college graduates who are educated, but lack experience:
“I really want to have my classmates run it because it’s really hard for you to get a job fresh out of college,” she said. “A lot of times people don’t hire you because you don’t have the experience Then I’m like well damn if you never get the chance to get the experience how are you ever going to get the job.”
