State Conference Speaker - Michael Cuestas

2017 State 4-H Conference Guest Speaker: Michael Cuestas
Guest Speaker Michael Cuestas State Conference

Michael Cuestas has established himself as part of the next generation of relevant Youth Speakers with a message that will have your audience laughing and maybe 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 persevere through these struggles and did not allow them to tell him he is less than. He encourages students to be leaders, know that their choices never diminish their worth, and to know that they are greater than any obstacle that may come their way.

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.

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