Megan Thee Stallion is topping charts, breaking records, and realizing her dreams of becoming a world-famous hip hop star. But there is still one dream the “Hot Girl Summer” rapper has yet to achieve.
As a student taking health administration online classes at Texas Southern University, Megan has aspirations that go beyond conquering the music industry. Upon finishing her studies, she plans to open a series of assisted living homes in Houston, her hometown. Seeing her family struggle to care for one another as they reached old age moved Megan to want to provide a better solution. She recently appeared and Strahan, Sara and Keke, and explained,
“I watched my grandmother take care of my great-grandmother all my life. Just watching these two little old ladies take care of each other, I was like, ‘Y’all need some help.’”
She added that she’s often seen this familial trend in black households in particular.
“You have your great-aunt taking care of her mom, and you have your grandmother taking care of her mother, and then just so on and so forth. So I’m like, okay, look, we need some help. So let me put some facilities around here so we can just take care of each other.”
About the prospective facilities, she pledged to establish a place that possesses a happy, relaxing atmosphere for its residents.
“I really want it to be a comfortable living situation.”
Megan not only wants to care for the elderly, but she also wants to help her classmates as well, vowing to hire other graduates to allow inexperienced professionals find jobs.
She told Billboard a few years ago,
“I thought it would be super easy for my classmates if I just opened up something that they could go get a job at.”
“But I want to run the hospital. I don’t want to do the dirty work, but I definitely want to put it there for people to come and help others.”
Megan Thee Stallion was recently the target of trolls on Twitter when she revealed her current GPA is 2.7. But it takes a lot of heart for a person to keep going, even if they’re struggling struggle with essays and exams. And especially when they’re already living the glamorous life of a rap star. Megan’s ongoing academic quest is proof that her goals are sincere. And just to see someone willing to give everything up just to help out others is refreshing to see.
