There are so many words to describe myself such as woman, student and daughter. However, I have never thought that the word “reporter” would be added in explaining who I am. Before I entered The Dongguk Post, I had just lived as everybody did. I was a student who was reluctant to challenge anything. To me, it was such a big choice to decide to apply for The Dongguk Post. “Can I be a help in this group?” “What if I cannot adapt to this life?” I asked myself even after I passed the entrance examination. The anxiety that I would be a burden in this group made me hesitate and lack confidence.
During the training period, the pressure did not get better. Especially, when preparing for the publication, it is not too much to say that it was natural to take the last bus when going home. I was worn out from the life of a cub reporter. I overstrained myself “every day” during the period. Moreover, when being left alone after the other cub reporters resigned, I felt so depressed. Whenever the work that I should handle increased due to the lack of the number of reporters, I had to comfort myself.
Nevertheless, it may sound strange, I think I will miss the moment when I was a cub reporter. Although there were many hardships, the fact that I was a cub reporter could be an excuse for my amateurishness. In addition, it was quite fulfilling to learn something from the seniors and other post reporters. From now on, as a post reporter, I have to do better in everything and be a help to the 52nd reporters. I want to be a reporter who can contribute to operating this group smoothly. I will try to get many lessons from the life of working in The Dongguk Post without regret.
