Ambassador Spotlight: Alex Cuesta


Alex - Brand Ambassador

Hi, my name is Alex Cuesta, I’m 15 years old, from London, and I am a brand ambassador for MyPocketSkill.

I’m in year 11 doing my GCSE's and I am studying mandarin, computer science, music and business. My career plans are not clear at the moment, but I am thinking of going into either the music production area, engineering or something IT related.

On MyPocketSkill, I have set up tasks for tutoring music lessons for piano or clarinet or saxophone, and tutoring for maths for younger children like KS2. I would say that the benefits of signing up is that through MyPocketSkill, as young people we are taught how to earn, save and learn money from a young age and you get top pick up skills like teaching a talent of yours to other people!

Being an ambassador for MyPocketSkill is a great opportunity to help spread the word about this brilliant platform as it means more young people can start earning money and gain work experience, which will benefit them in the future when applying for jobs and other professions.
