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.”
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.
