Megan McKenna was born in Barking, east London, on September 26, 1992. She grew up in Woodbridge, Essex, where she lived with her parents and relatives. Despite having a memorable upbringing, Megan became a victim of bullying at school.

Megan was harassed because she was different from the rest of her peers, which affected her singing. Megan would spend her lunch break in the school’s music studio, where she would sing and play the guitar. She ceased going to school when she couldn’t take it anymore from her classmates.
