“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”

-Martin Luther King, Jr.

Strange as it may sound to start my first-ever Editorial, I used to be the one who always tried to see the whole staircase even before I took even the first step. Every time I faced stairs ahead of me, I was worried that I would not be able to walk to the top. I did not dare to take steps. Too many times I just let go of many chances to go up the stairs in this way.

Then there came an opportunity to become the Editor-in-chief of The UOS Times. I never imagined myself as the Editor-in-Chief because first, there are simply too many responsibilities and jobs that follow, and second, I never considered myself to be competent for the position. Thus, when the opportunity came, I first had doubts that I would be capable of leading The UOS Times. I was about to let another chance to walk up the stairs slip away. At that moment, I looked back and thought about the experiences I had at The UOS Times, where I spent most of my time at university, and also into which I threw my heart and soul. I then realized how The UOS Times meant so much to me, and deep down I knew I wanted to devote myself to it more.

I seized the chance and took a step. I was and still am afraid of going up the stairs ? I am not sure how many obstacles I will face, and how many times I will truggle. Yet,I have taken the next step because I believe that I will always be here with The UOS Times no matter what, and that other reporters will be with me as well. I do not know what is on top of the staircase, and how many stairs I will have to walk up to get to the top, but still I take these steps with a firm belief that they will eventually get me to the top of the staircase someday.

Perhaps there have been some times where you were too afraid to take steps just because you could not see the whole staircase. However, do not lose a valuable opportunity to take the next step to your own uncertainty and fear and wait for another chance to come. Just take the first step. Each time you walk up the stairs, you will be able to see what is on top of the staircase more clearly and become closer to it. Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.

Kim You-jin Editor-in-Chief
