Amanda Bynes is “doing extremely well”.
he 27-year-old actress – who completed psychiatric treatment for both schizophrenia and bipolar disorder in December following a series of public outbursts – is working hard and enjoying her classes at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM)
Her mother Lynn – who is temporary conservator of Amanda’s personal and professional affairs – told People: “She is doing extremely well. She’s making new friends and learning about the fashion industry.”
Last week, Amanda and her parents attended a runway show at the Californian college, which showcased the work of senior students, and insiders says she fits in well at FIDM.
One source said:”She acts like any other student – focused and friendly.”
The ‘She’s the Man’ star enjoys classes so much, it was recently claimed she is planning on enrolling for more studies in April.
A source said: “If she was offered an acting job anytime soon, she may not take it because she’s so focused on school.”
The ‘Sydney White’ actress hasn’t spoken much since leaving treatment, but returned to twitter at the beginning of this month to update her followers.
She wrote: “Hi everyone! I’m busy studying at @FIDM but I want to say I love you to my fans!”
She also shared a self-portrait she had drawn, and the insider said that was just a hint of the talent she is showing.
The source said: “Amanda’s really talented at what she does so the picture is the real deal. She’s only just beginning.”
The actress originally intended to study fashion design but decided to pursue merchandise product development instead.
