About Tagpo: Right Place, Right Time by Florangel Rosario Braid

Tagpo is a Tagalog word that means ‘setting.’ Tagpo: Right Place, Right Time sums up the grand theme of this book where fortuitous events, which I describe as ‘being at the right place and at the right time’ or finding myself at the inception of a new project or innovation, appeared to be a pattern that shaped the course of my life. I also describe it as being present at the onset of a renaissance.” —Florangel Rosario Braid

Tagpo: Right Place, Right Time is a book on the life story of Florangel Rosario Braid, writer, educator, constitutionalist, painter, pioneer and expert in the field of communication and media, and social activist for peace, development, and nation building.


Braid is co-founder of the Asian Institute of Journalism and Communication (AIJC), established in the Philippines in 1980, and one of the framers of the 1987 Philippine Constitution.


The book, published by AIJC, chronicles Braid’s personal and professional journey, highlighting her involvement in national and international initiatives, where she found herself not only in the right place and at the right time but also at the cusp of every breakthrough.


Braid started writing her autobiography Tagpo in October 2022, sharing her diverse experiences and pioneering efforts in harnessing the power of communication to create social change. Her journey is both personal and monumental, a testament to her undeniable impact on society. Her influence has touched countless lives, from grassroots community journalists to policy makers in the Philippines and abroad.


The book also includes a chapter on AIJC’s history, milestones, and publications that can be used as reference by journalism and communication students, educators and professionals.
