After a string of infamous incidents earlier this decade, former child star Amanda Bynes has finally emerged ready to come back into the spotlight. According to PEOPLE, the actress has spent the last three years getting sober and working on her health.

Bynes, in an interview with Hollyscoop, said: “I do miss acting, and I have something surprising to tell you: I’m going to start acting again.”

After a series of incidents, including two hit and run charges and two DUI arrests, Bynes has worked to get her act together, saying, “I hike, I go spinning — take spinning classes — and I feed the homeless.”

Bynes also revealed that she’s been attending the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM), learning to sew and hopes to “start a clothing line in the future.”

“I am really loving school,” Bynes wrote on Twitter last year, “and I feel that I am learning a lot. I enjoy all of my classes and my teachers are excellent.”
