2018 STUCO Regional Conference Speaker

Michael Cuestas

Michael Cuestas has established himself as part of the next generation of relevant Youth Speakers with a message that will have your audience laughing, crying, and even singing.

Michael grew up in poverty without knowing his father. He has lived in a homeless shelter, a center for victims of domestic violence, and even a tent. Michael was able to overcome these struggles and he encourages students to not accept average, but go for greatness.

He connects with teens at a level that is rarely seen amongst today’s youth speakers via his personal stories, entertaining humor, and compelling message.

Michael graduated college with a B.S. in Business Administration and has worked for 6 different Fortune 500 companies. Also, he was formerly a V.P. of Information Technology for an investment firm.

Michael lives in Minnesota with his beautiful wife and his three adorable little girls.
