What is Ariel Winter Doing Nowadays?

Ariel Winter never planned on relying completely on acting even though she loves her job so much. Parallel to acting, Ariel is also a Law student and she began her pre-law degree just a couple of years ago.

In 2017 she began studying law at UCLA, “I didn’t want to completely rely on acting. I wanted to learn something else in a different field and that’s why I started going to college,” Ariel said in one interview.

“This is something completely new for me. I was a part of something that lasted very long and many decisions I wanted to make were impossible. I’m still exploring various things,” Ariel stated regarding the things she can now do after “Modern Family” ended.
