The lucky time came when she took part in one of the competitions arranged or organized by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, aka the Oscars.

The organization was then looking for college students for the position of correspondents and videographers to attend the ceremony. Megan had to earn votes to be under the top 10 to make her journey to the Oscars. Luckily, she did it and snagged the top spot with the help of her community of Rancho Cucamonga. She ended up in the top 3 and got the chance to attend the ceremony. Eventually, she applied to USC university and got selected. She ended up with her degree from the prestigious college of Southern California institution.
