Another fan reflected on the influencer’s lasting impact, writing: “This is heartbreaking. My deepest condolences to your family. I can’t believe it. Your daughter was remarkable. She showed us all how freeing and beautiful it is to be unapologetically yourself.

“I’m very sad that she is physically no longer here. But what she stood for, the confidence she exuded and instilled in her audience is a legacy that will live on forever. You will be missed Megha. Thank you for sharing your light with us.”
