Troubled Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans is determined to turn her life around and has started back at school now that she is out of rehab, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.
“After getting out of rehab she’s back home in North Carolina and started class at Cape Fear Community College on Wednesday. She’s taking American History and a math course,” her attorney Dustin R.T. Sullivan told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview on Friday.
“She wants to finish the two year program with an Associate’s Degree and then get her Bachelor’s Degree from UNCW (University of North Carolina Wilmington).”
Evans checked into a treatment facility in Malibu, California on May 7 after she was caught beating-up another girl on tape.
It was the latest in a string of incidents for Evans, who has been arrested repeatedly over the last six months. The reality star gave up custody of her young son, Jace, to her mother, Barbara while she was getting treatment.
Thankfully life is on the upswing for the 19-year-old according to her attorney.
“She’s doing really well and passed her first drug test when she saw her probation officer the day after getting out of rehab two weeks ago,” Sullivan revealed to RadarOnline.com, adding that Evans will get drug-tested once a month.
“She’s also applying for jobs to bring in some extra income. She wants something professional to help with her resume. She’s thinking about many things so much differently than three months ago.”
Evans has previously revealed to RadarOnline.com how she is determined to carve a bright future for her and son.
“In 10 years I see myself living in a decent house with a decent car and with Jace and married to a man that deserves me and my family. I also see myself with a career as a film editor,” she said in an interview.
