Megan Thee Stallion is working hard to make her mom proud. She shared with People magazine that she’s decided to continue her collegiate journey despite her epic rise to fame.
“I want to get my degree because I really want my mom to be proud. She saw me going to school before she passed.”
Her mom. Holly Thomas. died in March 2019 after battling brain cancer.
Megan is currently taking online courses part-time at Texas Southern University where she is working towards getting her bachelor’s degree in health administration. She is hoping to complete her coursework by next year.
Megan went on to say:
“My grandmother that’s still alive used to be a teacher, so she’s on my butt about finishing school. I’m doing it for me, but I’m also doing it for the women in my family who made me who I am today.”
“I’ve always seen everybody in my life be independent. My daddy passed away when I was 15, so my mama was still going hard taking care of us. If we were going through money problems, my mother and my two grandmothers always made sure I didn’t know. We could’ve been struggling, but they made it work. I’ve always seen strong women making it work, so I’ve always wanted to have that same drive the women in my family have. I know I get a lot of my strength from my mother and both of my grandmothers.”
