Megan Thee Stallion still plans to open up assisted living facilities now that she’s officially graduated college. After receiving her degree in health administration from Texas Southern University over the weekend, she spoke to Rolling Stone about her healthcare-related plans and her intentions to provide job opportunities to college graduates in search of employment.
“I’m still going to open up these assisted-living facilities, and I definitely want to hire new college graduates,” she said. “Nobody ever wants to hire you fresh out of college. They feel like you have no experience, so I want to create a place where you can get experience.”
Megan Thee Stallion started her higher education journey before her music career took off, catapulting her to mainstream fame. Her pursuit of a degree a health administration and plans to open assisted living facilities in Houston came to mind after watching her grandmother take on the role of her great-grandmother’s caretaker.
“I watched my grandmother take care of my great-grandmother all my life,” she explained during a past appearance on “Strahan, Sara and Keke.” “Just watching these two little old ladies take care of each other, I was like, ‘Y’all need some help.'”
Eventually, Meg’s strong desire to be a rapper trumped her career in healthcare, but her desire to open assisted-living facilities remained.
“I really wanted to be an administrator over a hospital, but I knew I still wanted to be Megan Thee Stallion,” she once said. “I was like, ‘What can I do?’ “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.”
While the Houston rapper intends to provide employment to recent college graduates, she made a special call to fellow HBCU graduates during her Glamour cover story. “Come and get your experience over here,” she said.
