Teen Mom” star Kailyn Lowry has been working towards a career in the health industry for quite a few years, but it sounds like she has been rethinking her life choices. If that wasn't enough, she is planning on going back to school even though she has two young sons. According to a new Wetpaint Entertainment report published on Feb. 4, “Teen Mom” star Kailyn Lowry is now revealing that she is trying something new for her career.

"I actually just applied to Delaware State so I'm hoping if I get in I'll start in the fall," Kailyn has shared, revealing that she plans to study TV, Radio, and Film. "If I can go full-time, I'll go full-time." Of course, this is a complete career change for her, as she worked to get her dental assistant certification about two years ago. She did work as a dental assistant before getting married and having her second son. But it sounds like she wants more of a challenge.

"If the opportunity arises I would love to be a host at some point," Kailyn dished. "I'm willing to work to get there and do behind-the-scenes production and that kind of stuff." And while she was filming the MTV catch-up special in New York, she did reveal that she was doing what she loved doing. And it sounds like she has the complete support of her husband.

"Javi and I had a really big talk about if I'm going to go back to school I need his 100 percent support and encouragement. I need him to be able to take the kids if I need to go to class," she revealed. "I went to community college for two years with Isaac and I didn't really have anyone to help me so I felt like I slacked off a lot more than I should have. I definitely want to give it my all this time."

So, could her desire to work in television be thanks to MTV? She has been friends with some of the producers, so it is possible they have been encouraging her to fight for her passions. What do you think of her career change?
