After the ceremony (which people could stream on TSU’s website), the “Savage” rapper commemorated her day with a quartet of photos, including a snapshot of her diploma case and a Ferrero Rocher wearing a cap. And, of course, her lovely self in a cap and gown.

All throughout Saturday, fans celebrated the beloved artist’s achievement with custom Twitter emojis and hashtags like #MeganTheeGraduate and #HotGirlGraduation. Celebrities like Cardi B congratulated Megan, writing on Twitter, “Congrats @theestallion all of your hard work paid of[f]!!! I know your parents are super proud of you.”

Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona wished Megan “continued success,” adding, “You worked so hard for this. Texas is proud of you, the country is proud of you, the secretary is proud of you.”

Taraji P. Henson reposted Megan’s photo and offered her congratulations. “CONGRATSSSSS BABY!!!! @theestallion we are all so proud of you 😘👏🏾 I see how hard you work AND you earned a degree on top of it…I KNOW THAT’S RIGHT!! #MegTheeGraduate 🎓.”

Megan has previously opened up about how important it was for her to get her degree as a tribute to the women in her family. “I want to get my degree because I really want my mom to be proud,” she told People last year in reference to taking part-time online courses. “She saw me going to school before she passed.”

“My grandmother that’s still alive used to be a teacher, so she’s on my butt about finishing school,” Megan added. “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.”

And while the hitmaker is still deciding what she wants to do with her degree — possibly open up an assisted-living facility for fellow alum to run — she’s made it crystal clear that she’ll achieve anything she puts her mind to!
