Amanda Bynes TK


After a rough 2013 that ended in a months-long stay in various psychiatric treatment centers, Bynes, 28, began the year working on a fresh start. She enrolled in classes at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, and by March, her mother, Lynn, told PEOPLE she’s “doing extremely well.”

“She’s making new friends,” she said, “and learning about the fashion industry.”

Once a place for her now-infamous tangents, she’s recently taken to Twitter to show off her schoolwork and even her bikini bod.

At the end of March, Bynes took a family vacation to Cabo San Lucas to celebrate her 28th birthday.

“Thank you everyone for all the birthday wishes,” she wrote days after marking the milestone on April 3.
