Amanda Woytus

Brief Biography: I am a junior at MU, majoring in magazine journalism, and pursuing two minors in political science in English. This is my first semester at the Missourian. I was born and raised in the suburbs of St. Louis, but I’m a city girl at heart. 

Hometown: St. Charles, Missouri


My Career Goals: Preferably, I would like to write for a magazine, although I am not completely sure. I might look into a career in publishing. Also, I would like to write a novel or collection of short stories someday, but that will have to wait quite awhile. As long as I am using my degree, I think I’ll consider myself happy. 

Why Journalism Interests Me: Journalism interests me because it pushes me to constantly learn things I didn’t know before. It’s new, it’s interesting, it’s what’s going on in your world, and I want to be a part of that. 

Other Interests: My hobbies include reading, writing short stories, jogging, and riding my bike. I also love visiting big cities, especially St. Louis and Chicago. Long before writing, ballet was my first love.  Art has recently become a huge part of my life, and my favorite artist is Cindy Sherman. My musical tastes tend to fall on the folk/acoustic/indie side, and right now I’m listening to She & Him and Basia Bulat. My favorite author is Jeffery Eugenides.
