Megan Thee Stallion earns her degree in health administration from Texas Southern University
Megan Thee Stallion has graduated from university!
The Grammy award winning rapper, 26, received her degree in health administration from Texas Southern University.
Taking to her social media, Megan wrote: “Meg Thee Graduate. I know my parents are looking down on me so proud. Thank you everyone for all the love today.”
Megan’s father Joe Pete passed away in 2011 when she was just 15 and her mother Holly Thomas died in 2019 after a battle with brain cancer.
Her mother, who went by the stage name ‘Holly-Wood’, was also rapper in their hometown of Houston, Texas.
Speaking to People, Megan said: “I want to get my degree because I really want my mom to be proud. She saw me going to school before she passed.
She added: “I literally watched my mom and my grandmother get up and go to work every single day. My big mama owned three houses in South Park [Houston]. She was going hard, working to provide for our family, so I’ve always seen her drive.
“I’ve always seen everybody in my life be independent. My daddy passed away when I was 15, so my mama was still going hard taking care of us. If we were going through money problems, my mother and my two [maternal] grandmothers always made sure I didn’t know.
“We could’ve been struggling, but they made it work. I’ve always seen strong women making it work, so I’ve always wanted to have that same drive the women in my family have. I know I get a lot of my strength from my mother and both of my grandmothers.”
