Megan Thee Stallion, real name Megan Pete, has been through a lot on her quest to superstardom and she conquered it all while pursuing a degree. 

The 26-year-old "Savage" rapper won three GRAMMY awards, scored brand collaborations with Popeyes and Revlon, and became an ambassador for brands such as Mielle Organics, Nike, and Coach, all while studying for her bachelor's degree in health administration at Texas Southern University in Houston, TX.  After graduation, she intends to open an assisted-living facility in her hometown.

“I watched my grandmother take care of my great-grandmother,” Megan told Angie Martinez. “I wanted other elderly people to feel like they’re taken care of while still in a home environment where they felt safe. Like, a family environment.”

The road hasn't been easy for Meg. As you can imagine, life as a full-time entertainer can make it quite difficult to focus on your studies. However, she's handled it with grace. 

"My college experience has been a roller coaster," Megan tweeted over the summer. "I started at [Prairie View A&M] 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."

In her March 6 appearance on The Breakfast Club, she candidly revealed that her busy schedule, full of performances, photoshoots, interviews, and other music-related obligations, had taken a toll on her grade point average. She admitted to the morning show that her GPA was 2.7 at the time  — the equivalent of a B- on a 4.0 GPA scale. 

However, the Houston Hottie can breathe a sigh of relief. She's finally reached the milestone she's been working tirelessly for. In a post on Instagram, Megan Thee Stallion revealed that she is taking her graduation photos today, which means that she's one step closer to getting her degree from an HBCU. 




With her graduation date set for the fall, Megan says she would love to have her Hotties attend. 


And for her haters, don't hold your breath on Megan giving up on her dreams. She still plans to open her assistant-living facility in Houston.
