A Pathway To Diplomacy
Career diplomats literally come in all shapes and sizes. The Philippine foreign service, like most of its counterparts around the world, is composed of men and women with the most diverse academic and professional backgrounds imaginable. Its corps of officers includes erstwhile academicians, journalists, writers, lawyers, certified public accountants, bankers, economists, political scientists, historians, sociologists, psychologists, social workers, managers, military officers, architects, engineers, schooled musicians, priests, philosophers and poets, to name but a few. There is probably no other field in both the public and private sectors that can equally pride itself with the immense diversity of its talents. And the reason for this is simple: There is no single pathway to diplomacy. One who wishes to pursue a diplomatic career is not required to arrive at his destination via a standard (much less, an obligatory) route. There are, rather, many possible roads he can take to reach his goal. In fact, he can even create his own path to diplomacy.
This book offers a glimpse of how one career diplomat carved out his own pathway to diplomacy, and shares with the reader the unique experiences and insights he gained along the way. Its pages contain variegated ruminations that could help young aspiring diplomats find their own way to the very challenging but immensely fulfilling world of diplomacy.
