Congratulations on earning your degree, miss ma’am.
Megan Thee Stallion received her Bachelor’s Degree in Health Administration from Texas Southern University on Saturday afternoon, inspired by her late mother, Holly Thomas, who died in 2019 after a battle with brain cancer.
“Good morning hotties!!! It’s graduation dayyyy #MeganTheeGraduate,” she said on Twitter, which has already gone viral, with a custom emoji of Megan wearing a hat and tassel.
She also provided the graduating ceremony’s live-streaming link with her cumulative 34 million Twitter and Instagram followers. Megan commented, “Hotties, you can watch me graduate today at 12:00 here,” together with some of her senior pics.
The rapper made it a moment to remember, smiling for photos and waving to the audience as her name was read (Megan Pete) in a triumphant walk across the stage in a traditional cap and gown, attaining a long-held desire that has remained important to her heart despite her meteoric rise to fame.
She quickly turned to Twitter to thank her admirers, writing, “WE DID IT HOTTIES,” in celebration of her success. In addition, the “Savage” singer likewise shared several photographs on Instagram with the title “Meg Thee Graduate,” as well as the words, “I know my parents are looking down on me so proud Thank you everyone for all the love today.”
