Sidney Cuesta, also known as ‘Sid,’ was an average college student. He doesn't have unique talents nor special awards. He was the silent type of student who sits at the back of the classroom. To survive his way into college, this young gentleman began his first business venture by retailing almost anything just to pay for his tuition fee, from raw chickens, school supplies and automobile spare parts. The 26-year-old launched his company, Proactive Mindsetters Events Services, before he earned his Business Administration degree from Colegio de San Juan de Letran Calamba in 2018.
Sid fondly recalled his first project with JCI, Tahanan Sta. Luisa. He met young children who were mistreated and molested through this endeavor, and this really struck a chord with him. The experience made him realize his blessings, and he also felt that it was his duty to use his resources and provide some guidance in order to give those children an opportunity to lead better lives.
Tahanan Sta. Luisa is only the start. Sid and JCI Makati linked up with more orphanages in order to utilize their resources and influence to make a positive impact in children’s lives.
As JCI Makati’s incoming Vice President for External Affairs, Sid remains committed in helping the JCI brotherhood grow even more, and also giving more people opportunities to have a better tomorrow.
