Reuben Kapp is a Mexican-American from Saginaw, Michigan. He earned a Bachelor of Arts in public policy and management from the University of Michigan and a minor in political science with a concentration in international conflicts. As an undergraduate, Reuben worked closely with the Latino community on campus with several student organizations. In addition, he worked as a student assistant for the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and for the National Center for Institutional Diversity.

In 2010, Reuben interned for the University of Michigan’s Federal Relations Office located in Washington D.C. where  he experienced many political procedures and lobbying practices. He went on to study at Carnegie Mellon University where he received intensive training in public policy.
