After Megan Thee Stallion received her Bachelor of Science in Health Administration from Texas Southern University, our favorite hottie was recognized for her humanitarian work in her hometown of Houston, Texas. 

Due to her many accolades and initiatives, Megan was honored with the 18th Congressional District of Texas Hero Award.

The rare award that isn’t often given out cited her local philanthropic works, reading, “She maintained a passion for philanthropy with a specific focus on education, elder care, mental health, and women’s empowerment. As her career blossomed, Megan began to identify different ways to leverage her public platform to uplift overlooked communities in her hometown.”

The award continued to highlight how Megan donated proceeds from her breakout single “Savage” to Bread of Life, a Houston-based non-profit organization, providing food, water, and other relief to families in the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.

The rapper stated that she was grateful for being honored by the citizens of her community.

Megan spoke about the lessons she learned during her upbringing in Houston during the award ceremony, and noted via ABC13 that she was happy about having her philanthropic efforts recognized.

‘It’s my responsibility to take care of the city that took care of me. My grandma always taught me to be kind and giving. I learned that from her,’ she stated. 

She later dedicated the distinction to her grandmother during the celebratory event. 

“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,” Megan said.
