Meghan, whose real name is Rachel, enjoyed a private education at the Immaculate Heart High School in Los Angeles, a private college preparatory school for girls.
It was attended by various actresses and Victoria’s Secret model Tyra Banks, and there are various reviews of the school on Yelp.
Meghan has spoken out about her bi-racial heritage before – her mother is African-American and her father is white.
She said in Elle magazine: “Being biracial paints a blurred line that is equal parts staggering and illuminating.”
“While my mixed heritage may have created a grey area surrounding my self-identification, keeping me with a foot on both sides of the fence, I have come to embrace that. To say who I am, to share where I’m from, to voice my pride in being a strong, confident mixed-race woman.”
