Amber sets out to achieve her “educational goals.” During tonight Teen Mom OG episode, the mother of two began the process of pursuing a college degree at Purdue University (she received her GED while in prison). The first step: Amber spoke to an admissions representative about her desire to study neurological psychology because of her “different types of mental illness.”
“I’ve been going to therapists and psychiatrists for the last ten years, and I’ve always been very curious,” explains Amber. “I just feel like this is the next step in merging it with education. I think it would be really powerful to help people, honestly.”
Shortly after the call, Amber put her plan into action and submitted her application online. Then she received big news via email.
“Congratulations! You’re enrolled at Purdue University,” Amber read to her producer Lorraine. And once reality started to give in, Amber admitted she was “super happy” with this next chapter. Next: Psychology and English Courses!
Amber once believed she “couldn’t do it,” but now she has the confidence that she can “get there and do it.” How will she adjust to this next chapter of her life? Keep watching Amber every Tuesday on Teen Mom OG at 8/7c.
