This was the second magazine in which I have participated. Although I did my best, it was still very hard for me to write an article. I hope to write better next time. Also I wish that more of our readers pay closer more attention to the humanities crisis after checking out our Society section.
I have made some progress, yet there are still so much to learn and experience. Like Voltaire said, “The more I read, the more I acquire, the more certain I am that I know nothing.” I can’t wait for my future with The UOS Times and working with great fellow reporters.
I cannot forget the joy I experienced when I first became a cub reporter for The UOS Times. It has been about six months and recently I became a junior reporter. I feel that the time has gone by so fast, and I am continuing to advance here as my position changes. At first, I could not imagine writing a long article in English. However, in this 140th issue, I wrote one of the longest articles in the magazine with Jae-in. This issue will be very special to me as it is my first issue working as an official member of The UOS Times. I want to make memorable experiences here. Always, thank you to everyone who helped me write a good article!
Starting from this issue, I will be able to write articles independently. While covering the articles, you get to know various interesting things. For this issue, I covered the Funs and the Review. I got to know about the usefulness of Ttareungyi, the public bicycle renting system of Seoul, and different ways to overcome cold in different countries. If I was not a reporter, it is likely that I would not have given these topics much interest, and eventually would never have gotten to know most of this interesting information. In fact, the most interesting experience I had was writing the articles themselves. Writing for the public is something I believe is a valuable experience. It is an experience that is not acquired easily. Therefore, I think that this as a great opportunity, and I am looking forward to the potential benefits it will present to me.

I will put in a lot of effort as a junior reporter. Thank you.
