“I mean, the fact that I’m in college at all right now is incredible,” the model admits. “When I was in ninth grade, I was taken out of school because the Amish don’t go to school past ninth grade. It’s always been my dream to come back to college and get an official education.”

“It’s so important for me to build a strong career because I’m not going back to Pennsylvania, ever,” the reality TV star continues. “I think the best thing I ever did was completely cut ties with all of my friends and everything back home, not because they weren’t good for me, but because if I would have stayed in touch with them, I would still be hanging onto that life that I had, and it would keep me from pursuing what I want to do up here.”
