Millie Bobby Brown is a renowned actress, model, producer, and is also the mastermind behind the beauty company Florence by Mills. In an interview with Allure magazine she revealed that she is taking online classes at Purdue University. The university’s website confirms the fall semester begins Monday, August 22, and ends Saturday, December 17. Brown will be a college student while filming the fifth and final season of Stranger Things after being 12 years old during the start of the show.
Brown recently announced that she is enrolled in Purdue University located in Indiana, the same state that her show Stranger Things takes place. She plays heroine Jane “El” Hopper also referred to as Eleven in the show who has super powers which she uses to defeat the monsters in the Upside Down.
According to a LA Times article, Brown has been enrolled in the institution since March. A representative for the university told the LA Times that she is working towards her bachelor’s degree in youth/family services and administration. Her academic program will consist of 10-week terms. She picked this field of study to “learn about the system and how to help young people,” she told Allure magazine.
Purdue alumni include standup comedian Jim Gaffigan, former NFL quarterback Drew Brees, and Neil Armstrong who was the first person to walk on the moon.
Anyone that has followed the actress over the last few years knows that it is not surprising that she chose youth/family services as her field of study. Brown is one of the many spokespeople for the younger generation. She uses her beauty brand Florence by Mills to educate young girls and young people about makeup and what ingredients are best for their skin.
Last year Brown was declared the youngest UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. After becoming the new ambassador she expressed her excitement to meet young people and hear their stories as well as be a voice for them. As an ambassador she uses her universal platform to speak on issues that impact young people such as poverty, bullying, effects of violence, safe places to play and learn, and lack of education, according to the UNICEF website.
