She emphasized that success is not defined by leaving home, but by coming home and shifting generational patterns. Meghan hoped to be a role model for many young women, stating that being a woman doesn’t always mean being serious and strong.

Meghan’s dream is to be a mother, and she is fortunate to have two beautiful, healthy, and chatty children.
