Amanda Bynes was a once promising actress whose career took a nosedive after several legal and personal issues. However, after spending time at a treatment facility and working with a life coach, she’s getting herself back on track!

E! News is reporting that the former child star is currently working on finishing her degree at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM).

A source close to the actress revealed all of her progress over the last few years:

“Amanda is doing good right now. She is still attending FIDM and is on track to graduate in the fall.”

And while she may not be making many friends there, she’s definitely enjoying her time. The source noted:

“She still loves going to FIDM and is interested in the history of fashion very much right now. She has been reading all sorts of materials on books about it for her own interest and knowledge, so that’s been keeping her busy… At school, Amanda doesn’t socialize, she doesn’t want to be a distraction for the other students so she just keeps her head down, focuses on the work and sticks to herself. Her game plan is to finish school because she really wants to finish what she started at FIDM.””

Bynes is also keeping out of the spotlight for the time being. As the source explained:

“She spends a lot of time with her life coach and is sticking to her program. Her relationship with her life coach is productive and helpful.”

However, if you miss seeing Amanda Bynes on the big screen, you’re in luck. The actress explained in a rare interview last year that she wants to start acting again. She said:

“I do miss acting, and I have something surprising to tell you: I’m going to start acting again. I want to do TV. Maybe a few guest spots on some shows that I’m a fan of and maybe another TV show where I’m the star of it, in the future. That’s what I hope.”

We are so happy to hear how well she is doing, and we wish her only the best.
