Diego Cuesy, 27 years old, born in Chiapa de Corzo, Chiapas, currently works at the Lab for the City in Mexico City as policy analyst and community outreach. He has been studying and promoting open government practices in Mexico City for the past two years, both within and outside the government. Before he served as community outreach coordinator in Yspaniola, a human rights and education NGO in the Dominican Republic. He has a bachelor's degree in International Relations, graduated with honors and was part of the first generation of Yale Visiting International Students. Nature makes him happy and he likes participating in the traditional festivities of his hometown, where he dresses and dances as parachico. He believes the Stanislavski method could be a powerful tool for development practitioners, political leaders and policy-makers.
