Millie Bobby Brown following in the footsteps of fellow former child stars Jodie Foster, Brooke Shields and Emma Watson — by going to college at the height of her fame.
The “Stranger Things” star, who plays Eleven in the hit Netflix show, revealed she’s enrolled at Indiana’s Purdue University where she will pursue a major in human services.
While she continues to work in acting and juggle her many on and off-screen ventures, the 18-year-old will be doing her studies online.
The university’s Director of Media and Public Relations, Tim Doty, told The Post that the actress is likely enrolled at Purdue Global — the institution’s online system.
The actress told Allure the course will help her “learn about the system and how to help young people.”
Asked if the mounting responsibility that comes with fame is manageable for her, the actress said, “Of course, people can look at it as pressure or scary, but I think that’s the most exciting part of my job.”
She explained, “People are all looking at me, ‘What are you going to say, Millie?’ I’m going to say, ‘Young girls deserve an education. Young people everywhere deserve equal rights. [You] deserve to love the people that you want to love. Be the people that you want to be and achieve the dreams that you want to achieve.’ That’s my message.”
The two-time Emmy nominee said at the end of the day, she just wants to “help young girls and young people.”
“I’m not this perfect person that is selling skin-care products and [who is] in Stranger Things.’ I absolutely have made wrong decisions,” she added.
According to Purdue University’s website, the human services major enables students to help “today’s individuals and families” to “find solutions to challenging circumstances.”
“The Human Services curriculum is designed to provide students with knowledge and theory in human development and family studies, skills for working with children, adults, and families, and program evaluation skills,” the website adds.
