About The Author

RODOLFO I. NECESITO

Rodolfo I. Necesito originally came from the barrio of Cabalitian, Asingan, Pangasinan, in the Philippines. After obtaining his college degree from The University of Santo Tomas in Manila in 1961, he taught English and Literature in high school for three years. He eventually landed a writing job at The Philippine National Red Cross, churning out press releases and ghostwriting messages and speeches for Red Cross officials. When his office was upgraded to a Department status, he was promoted to Director of Public Relations and Publications. In 1970, his office sent him on a world trip to study public relations and information practices in other Red Cross societies. On that same trip, he attended a weeklong international Red Cross information seminar in Geneva, Switzerland, the only attendee from Asia.
