Rap star Megan Thee Stallion might have a new alias on her hands, Megan Thee Scholar! The Grammy-award-winning artist is now a college graduate.
This past Saturday, the “Savage” artist earned obtained a bachelor’s degree in health administration, a goal she set for herself to remember both her late mother and grandmother.
Pete’s mother, Holly Thomas succumbed to her battle with brain cancer in March 2019. Her late great-grandmother was a teacher who died two weeks later.
“I want to get my degree because I really want my mom to be proud,” the artist, 26, told People last year. “She saw me going to school before she passed.”
To help celebrate Pete’s milestone, Nike named her an HBCU Yard Runner for Texas Southern University.
The 26-year-old took photos with the TSU’s faculty and president Dr. Lesia Crumpton-Young.
Immediately after graduating, the “Body” artist revealed the next goal that she wants to accomplish.
“I really wanted to be an administrator over a hospital, but I knew I still wanted to be Megan Thee Stallion. I was like, ‘What can I do?'” Pete told People last June. “I was like, ‘You know what, I’m gonna open an assisted-living facility and use the money that I make from rapping to open it. Then I’m gonna let my classmates run it.”
Congratulations Megan on graduating! Tell us down below what is your favorite Megan Thee Stallion song!
