|Lee Min-jeong (Junior, Korean Education)|
I worked as a student reporter of The Dongguk Post for two years, more specifically, for 22 months. Honestly, not every single moment was satisfying. Of course, there had been some moments I wanted to give in through my term as a reporter; I had suffered from a bunch of tasks that I had to deal with and was stressed out because of problems that I had to face.
However, looking back then, what made me more mature and a better reporter were the moments that I wanted to avoid. The more I overcame problems, the more I learned. My 22 months were a series of learning events which cannot be taught even by professors.
I can still recall the time when I first wrote the cover story article with my co-reporter, Ji-soo, “Weighted Preference in Choosing a Voluntary Organization: Scarce in Seniors and Disability Welfare Centers.” Even though we were writing about what we wanted, we could not write with confidence. It was because we did not fully understand what we were writing, what messages we wanted to deliver through the article. Thankfully, we were able to complete it with other reporters’ assistance and I learned how to write a “readable article.” Since then, I got used to overcoming difficulties.
It is hard to describe all the things I learned because I got countless lessons from the Post. Yet, one thing I can assure is that the Post has raised me up so far and I have become a better person. Two years at The Dongguk Post was my Odyssey that helped me grow up, and it was successful. Since I finished my longest and hardest experience with the Post, I am not afraid of any other adventures which would start soon. I want to thank my companions, and wish them all the luck. Adios, The Dongguk Post.
