As a lot of people say in their inaugural speeches, it is such an honor to become the Editor-in-Chief of The UOS Times. My heart is filled with pride, but I am really scared and it is shocking that there are so many more things to be done than expected.
However, I do not think every person is always prepared to jump into something new, such as being a parent, CEO, or Editor-in-Chief. Even though all of the former Editor-in-Chiefs said they were not ‘editor-material’ or ‘chief-material’ at first, they all did great in the end. They all tried to learn from and work with others to make up for any skills or abilities they lacked. Therefore, I think that from the time someone obtains some new position, a learning curve to become better begins to develop.
I cannot say that I have the same confidence to lead The UOS Times as the former Editor-in-Chief, Han-sol Moon, currently possesses. Nonetheless, I am ready to learn and make this magazine better with my people. I, and our entire press, have great writers including Moon-joo Lee, Shin-ho Ahn and five junior reporters by our side. Therefore, I will always keep an open mind by learning from and listening to our reporters and Senior-Editors in order to become a better Editor-in-Chief.
