Megan Thee Stallion

Megan Thee Stallion


I only became aware of Megan thee Stallion’s many accomplishments and three Grammys when I read about her in Glamour Magazine, when she was one of the Woman of the Year in 2021. I became a fan of hers after I watched her Hottie Commandments video where she appealed to her rapping fan base to not be a bully and instead be an ally to others. She used her fame and wealth to help her hometown, Houston, by showing up at the Houston Food Bank to donate 1,000 turkeys for Thanksgiving. During COVID, she partnered with Amazon to stock a Houston nursing home with Amazon Fire tablets so the residents and staff could communicate with their loved ones during isolation. Because of these efforts and others, Megan was awarded the 18th Congressional District’s humanitarian award in Houston in 2022.

Following her graduation from college in 2021, at 27 Megan started a foundation and named it after her parents. The foundation’s mission statement reads “The mission of the Pete and Thomas Foundation is to catalyze resources to effect meaningful and positive change in the lives of women and children, senior citizens, and underserved communities in Houston, Texas and across the globe.”  The foundation’s current focus is on wellness. The launch in 2023 of #BlackGirlJoyChallenge aims to elevate young Black girls and gender-expansive youth in the Southern United States.  

Born Megan Pete, Megan is the first Black woman to be on the cover of Forbes magazine for its 30 Under 30 issue in 2022, when her net worth was $8 million.
