Debut Essay from 44th New Post reporters

 

"The Post life will be paid off" / By Noh Yoo-ra

I became a Post reporter after six months of apprenticeship. I applied to become a reporter just to gain experience and to find out what kind of work they do. In other words, I applied to become a reporter with a light heart, maybe that's why I went through such a difficult time at the Post. Although it has gotten easier, going out to cover the news and coming up with fresh ideas was and still is the most complex thing to do. I am overcoming this hardship by learning from  friends and seniors at The Post. The seniors have helped me a lot, they give me ideas when I bring in new items for the news as well as  when I cover the news by giving  interviews. Writing news articles of any kind in English are pretty easy for me. This is because I went to English school when I was in high school years. The Post life could have been more difficult if I had not learned advanced writing in English. My parents have told me that I'm very lucky to be a reporter at my university. After several months at The Post I am starting to agree with them, I think I am lucky to be a campus reporter. I would like to continue working at The Post until I graduate in order to continually progress and grow as a reporter and a writer.

"Thank you, Post" / By Park Sung-yeun

"I will do my best to become a solid reporter and I will not forget this."  This is one of the promises that I made during my interview to be a reporter for the Dongguk Post.
When I first became a cub reporter for the Post, everything was new and novel.  I was not accustomed to our meetings every week.  Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, we would meet to go over new items of interest and talk about the ways to make our newspaper better.  This was especially difficult for me as I had no idea about the issues going on around the campus or within our society.  Without the help of my seniors, I could barely pick out an item to write about. I did, however, and this was the new health service amendment. I also had difficulty interviewing others because I am somewhat timid when it comes to meeting with strangers.  I felt it was strange for freshmen to be calling and visiting different school agencies to gather new information about the school. 
After working for the Post for about 8 months, however, I am thankful that I feel more comfortable when meeting with new people.  When I graduate from our school in a few years, I will encounter with various people from all areas of society.  Where at one time I had no confidence of having comfortable conversations with them I think it will be much easier now to handle these situations. Considering I am not yet finished with my practice to learn from the Post, I anticipate to learn many more things as well. I am pretty fortunate.

"My Post life is baseball" / By Kim Jong-ha

Time flies, or so the saying goes.  I was in the middle of adapting to campus life when I saw a Dongguk Post poster advertising for cub reporters.  I thought this would be the perfect fit for me because I like writing essays and reading and did this before in school.  After becoming a cub reporter for the Dongguk Post, I can say that I have become a better writer and reader and it is far better than being a student reporter.  It is not all easy however.  It has been difficult to collect the news.  It also felt awkward to meet people for the first time and debate with them.  Then again, all things are a little difficult for beginners so I just had to remind myself of this and with this mindset I did my best all of the time.  Four months later, I am now a Post Reporter.  Now collecting the news is natural and discussing the article sources is one of my favorite things.  There are still a lot of troubles living as a reporter but when I complete my term at the Post I am sure that I will have learned a lot of things and have gained many great experiences.

"I am just one reporter but that is pretty good" / By Lee Jong-seok

Browsing through a newspaper, the first things you are attracted to are the headlines. Then, you see one you like, you choose to read through the story. Against your expectation, often it does not include what you want to know or already had heard of. Maybe, the writer was pushed for deadline, so his work was sloppy, or maybe neglect of his duty gathering critical information or interviewing people thoroughly. Readers surely know of something amiss right away.
Booms of media, there are countless newspapers, magazines and broadcasts everywhere. There are no more only a reader and vice versa; only no more a reporter. I am just one reporter out of millions. Legion of us post their articles on web simultaneously with being estimated the value of our articles. I’m surely nothing different to them or maybe inferior in some fields. But, dealing with news of Dongguk, I’ll absolutely be eager to spend my time interviewing people and bringing readers the best stories possible.
Six months have passed since I submitted my application foam to campus newspaper. Reviewing my time as a cub reporter, awkward and clumsy my behavior flitter through my mind. I just earned my title of Dongguk reporter in Post and now I am at the tip of to another start.
Nobody’s perfect; also, I am far from of that I assure you. Meanwhile I am ready to being a perfect in my writing. So I am still a reporter.
