Megan Thee Stallion — née Megan Pete — is the epitome of a real “hot girl,” constantly soaring to new heights and trusting the journey throughout it all.
In a recent interview with Billboard, the 26-year-old explained how much it means to now be the product of a historically Black-owned college and university (HBCU).
Back in December 2021, the Texas native walked among her peers to accept her bachelor’s degree in health administration from Texas Southern University, a feat that she managed to knock out of the park all while becoming one of the world’s biggest rap superstars.
“I really feel like I did something that was very prestigious,” she said to the outlet.
The accomplishment hits different for the “Savage” emcee, who says that she is most proud to continue the HBCU legacy of all of the women in her family.
“I feel like I’m making all of the women in my family proud,” Megan Thee Stallion expressed. “All the women in my family went to HBCUs. I’m just going down the legacy of doing the same thing of fully college-educated women. I definitely just had to keep making them proud, and I had to make myself proud. I had to prove to myself that I can finish it, and I did even in the middle of my chaotic life.”
In the past, the entertainer has often expressed what it’s been like juggling shows, her personal life, and building an empire all while trying to get her assignments submitted to Blackboard before their deadlines — but now that this chapter is behind her, she aims to continue to encourage fans that they can do whatever they put their mind to.
How Megan Thee Stallion is Manifesting The Life Of Her Dreams
“I just also wanted to show the Hotties that you can do whatever you put your mind to,” Megan continued. “So I’m super proud to have graduated from an HBCU.”
She has since gone on to secure big bags through deals with brands like Doritos and even streaming-giant Netflix where she will assist with creating and executive producing new series and various projects.
As for the future, she also hopes to open up assisted-living facilities and even would like to try her hand at acting.
“I’m definitely going to be in my acting bag, and I’m definitely going to be in my directing bag,” Megan exclaimed. “But right now, I’m definitely manifesting that I will get these buildings together to open up my assisted-living facilities. I already manifested my Netflix deal, so you will see the results of my manifestations from that.”
There’s no stopping this hot girl anytime soon, Megan Thee Stallion is just getting started.
