Amy Bruer works as an undergraduate academic advisor for the University of Missouri School of Journalism. She holds a BA in Film and is currently working on her Masters in Photojournalism. After completing a Bachelor of Art in Film at the University of Nevada Las Vegas she realized begging for money to finance films was not what she wanted her future to be. A desire to continue exploring story telling and the visual arts led her to photojournalism. In the summer of 2012 she did her first internship at a newspaper, the Columbia Missourian. This proved to be a great learning experience both professionally and personally. Bruer discovered she had a passion for farm photography and spot news.
