Author: Morgan Niezing

My name is Morgan Niezing. I’m from Wildwood, Missouri, which is a suburb located southwest of St. Louis. Back home, I live with my parents, younger sisters Mallory and Jordan, and a boxer named Nala. I am currently a sophomore and am double majoring in animal science and in science and agricultural journalism. Though my interest in writing has largely been in the area of creative writing up until now, it may translate smoothly into a drive to write pieces of journalism. I began my time at Mizzou pursuing a degree in animal science, with an emphasis in pre-veterinary science, but have since decided to more fully explore other possible opportunities. Though I have not yet settled on whether I will continue to pursue veterinary school or a degree in science and agricultural journalism, I know that my love of writing and the natural world will never leave me.
