In addition to losing her mother, Megan's grandmother died not long after. "I want my big mama to be proud. She saw me going to school before she passed," she added. "My grandmother that's still alive used to be a teacher, so she's on my butt about finishing school. 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 also gave PEOPLE a glimpse at some of her post-grad plans, which will include her fellow TSU alums. RELATED VIDEO: Hot Girl Scholar!
