Muskan Virk is the author of her debut book, 365 Days Of Gratitude. At just 6 years old, she was curious to find out about a flyer she saw her Grandmother had on the table that talked about the term “gender equality”. She asked her mother Meera and insisted that her mother explain to her what it meant. Muskan was driven to action change and to be a leader in this cause. She asked her parents about what she can do and expressed how touched she was that others experience gender inequality in this world. She started fundraising each year for her birthday in lieu of gifts and have been successful in donating to the Malala Fund, the Rick Hansen Foundation, the Cancer Foundation and various other local charities in Vancouver’s downtown eastside. From her journal of over 450 gratitudes came the book and the Helping Hands organization whose mission is to drive awareness and help those who are homeless or at risk of being homeless.
After the release of the book in 2016, Muskan embarked on a North American book tour with stops in New York and Los Angeles. She collaborated with The Midnight Mission who serves the Los Angeles area, where she participated in the dinner service and gave out 1,000 handwritten notes to the attendees. Muskan has been blessed to be supported by many including contributing authors Serena Dyer, Maya Kanigan, Rick Hansen, Taylor Conroy and Jason Garner. In addition, she has appeared in numerous talks, book signings, Q&As, radio and tv interviews with like minded, heart centred supporters who feel passionately in sharing her message.
Being a young lady whose passion is to help others and be a good role model, Muskan has been involved in many events that bring awareness to issues that affect both youth and adults both in her community and at each stop of her book tours. Currently, Muskan is honoured to represent the Positivity Power Movement (http://www.positivitypowermovement.com) as their first Official Canadian Ambassador. She lives with her parents and her dog Butterball in Vancouver, BC.
