The former child actress, now 27, took to Twitter to update her followers on what she's been doing since her much-publicised breakdown last year.
After deleting all her previous tweets, she wrote the simple but hopeful message: "Hi everyone! I'm busy studying at @FIDM but I want to say I love you to my fans! Xoxo Amanda."
Amanda has been living a low-key life studying fashion at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Orange County - a vast difference to her high-profile acting career.
The ex-Nickelodeon star was released from in-patient psychiatric treatment in November 2013, following a tumultuous period in which she was arrested in New York.

After a 2012 DUI offence, Amanda is currently honouring three years of probation and three months of alcohol education classes.
After receiving psychiatric treatment, the Hairspray star currently lives under her parents' care in California.
Recent pictures show her looking healthy and well on the road to recovery.
