Megan Thee Stallion wants her hotties by her side when she completes an upcoming milestone: graduating from college.
The rapper, who is currently studying health care administration at Texas Southern University and set to graduate this year, put out a hope into the universe à la Twitter earlier this week. “I really want some of my hotties to come to my graduation,” she wrote, eliciting plenty of volunteers from her fans and even fellow celebs. (Dylan O’Brien, for one, is ready to sit front row.)
Meg continued by sharing that her college experience has been a “roller coaster,” which makes the need for celebration all the more important. “I started at PV went to some community colleges in between and I’m ending at TSU,” she said. “Don’t get discouraged! You can chase your dreams and your education at the same time.” According to Billboard, Megan plans to put her degree to important use by opening assisted-living centers in Houston, which is the musician’s hometown.
Education is something that is clearly very important to Meg; last fall, she announced the creation of her Don't Stop Scholarship, a fund aimed at providing $10,000 to two women of color pursuing an associate’s, bachelor’s, or post-graduate degree. And in June of this year, Megan donated one full-tuition, four-year scholarship to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation School of Music, Sports and Entertainment at Long Island University, which is set to launch in Fall 2021. “Getting an education is incredibly important to me,” Megan said in a press release at the time. “I still have academic goals that I want to achieve, so if I can use my resources to open doors and create opportunities for at least one student, then it’s a victory. It’s important that we encourage our students to pursue their passions and put them in positions to become the next game changer in whichever fields they choose.”
Her own educational path remains an essential part of Megan’s life, even as her music career continues to explode and reach new heights. In an interview with People, Meg previously explained that she’s been inspired to pursue her degree in part by her grandmother, who was a teacher, and also for her late mother, who had been cheering her on before her passing. “I’m doing it for me,” Megan said, “but I’m also doing it for the women in my family who made me who I am today.”
