Bio

Hey! I'm glad you're here.

My name is Jake Alihan Kapusansky, and I pride myself on being a visionary leader and professional speaker. I currently serve on various justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion advisory boards including the Presidential Student Advisory Network and the College of Business DEI Committee through my start-up, Kap and Company: www.changewithkapandco.com.

This summer, I worked as a Services Sales Intern at Dell Technologies, and over a 12-week period of rigorous project development and presentation(s), I learned the value of having someone believe in you.

At Dell, any idea I had, thought through, and worked to develop was supported and championed. In congruence with my Services Sales training, I gained the confidence to create a holistic business process that will be implemented into the summer '23 cohort based on culture, diversity, and inclusion principles.

My personal mission is to create and maintain multiple streams of problem-solving ideas, to have a lasting proactive impact on long-term actionable change.

To align with this mission, in 2020, I co-founded the Organization of Asian Leaders, which aims to develop diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives that support the Asian community in Mt. Pleasant. As a champion of diversity, I continue to develop science through my start-up, Kap and Company while I mentor students to develop their personal & professional brands as a Resident Assistant and advisor to my communities.

While I currently reside in Mt. Pleasant, MI, I am pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Marketing with a Professional Sales Concentration with a minor in Information Systems at Central Michigan University.

When I am not working, I spend my time with my family and friends, eating, laughing, and having conversations about life. I love to watch movies, read, write, and go for runs at a very slow pace.
