Amber Portwood may be a reality show star now, but the Teen Mom OG star is still thinking about her future and looking into furthering her education. Over the weekend, the mom of two took to Twitter to reveal she is looking for a good college to work on a degree in sociology or psychology.

“What is the best online college for a Sociology/Psychology degree? If there’s anyone who can help please let me know. I’m looking for a school either in my Indianapolis area with online courses and possibly one on one classes as well thank you #sendinglove.”

Another tweet revealed that she is looking for a school where she can “move at her own pace.” Caring for her young son and having an older daughter, Amber also revealed that being able to take a break for a “day or so” is important.

Amber was introduced to audiences on her Season 1 episode of 16 and Pregnant. On the show, she found out she was pregnant with her daughter, Leah. Cameras continued to follow Amber and her then-boyfriend Gary Shirley for Teen Mom OG as they tried to make their relationship work while caring for their daughter. Things didn’t work out and Amber spiraled downward, even spending some time in prison. Upon her release, Amber has been working hard to turn her life around.
