The Grammy Award-winning rap star graduated from HBCU Texas Southern University yesterday, and it was her goal that took years to make. Megan, 26, majored in health management.
After the party (which people could flow On TSU), the “Savage” rapper marked her day with a quartet of photos, including a shot of her diploma status and Ferrero Rocher wearing a hat. And, of course, her beautiful self in a hat and dress.
Throughout Saturday, fans celebrated the beloved artist’s achievement Twitter custom emoji and hashtags like #MeganTheeGraduate and #HotGirlGraduation. Celebrities like Cardi B congratulated Megan, and wrote Twitter, “Congratulations to theestallion for all your hard work paid[f]!!! I know your parents are very proud of you.”
Taraji P. Henson reposted Meghan’s photo and offered her congratulations. “CONGRATSSSS BABY!!!!theestallion We are all so proud of you 😘👏🏾 I see how hard you have worked and got a degree above it…I know it’s true!! #MegTheeGraduate 🎓.”
Meghan has previously opened up about how important it is to earn her degree as a tribute to the women in her family. “I want to get my degree because I really want my mom to be proud,” she told People last year, referring to taking online courses part-time. “She saw me go to school before she died.”
“My surviving grandmother used to be a teacher, so she’s tracking down my studies,” Megan added. “I do it for myself, but I also do it for the women in my family who made me who I am today.”
And while the playmaker is still deciding what she wants to do with her degree – perhaps opening a living facility to help her fellow running mate – she has made it very clear that she will achieve anything she sets her mind to!
