My curiosity towards working as a reporter prompted me to join The Dongguk Post. Now it is a big part of my school life. What would I have done for so many hours if I were not a reporter of the Post? Perhaps I would have wasted my time playing with my smartphone with no definite idea.
The most difficult part of my journalistic activity was writing and giving my opinion. In fact, I tended to be careful with other people’s point of view and not tell my opinion well. I used to follow the majority or others’ opinion when doing activities with people such as a team project in class. I did not feel the necessity to think about my opinion because I would follow the opinions of others. At first, I was afraid of telling my opinion, but it became a habit as time passed. It was foolish of me to act like that.
In the Post, I had to force myself to “think.” The activities in The Dongguk Post were a series of thinking from the beginning to the end. In order to have my own opinions and express them at the meeting, I had to think about the subject. Deciding article topics, giving feedbacks on others’ works, and writing articles all meant I have to think all the time. Even for determining proper interview questions, which I thought would be the easiest took quite a long time.
Still, the process of thinking is not easy, but it has become much better as a reporter than before. The ability to think has been used elsewhere. Now even in classes, I ask questions and give my opinions when doing team projects.
