Muskan (Moose-Con) is a second-year student at the University of Utah Honors College, studying math and philosophy. In June of 2020, Muskan launched a campaign in collaboration with the Sierra Club Utah Chapter to commit Davis School District, her local district, to a 100% clean electricity transition by 2030, and in all energy sectors by 2040. Muskan has since had the incredible honor of leading a team — ranging from middle school students to college sophomores, teachers, and community members — to help realize a 100% clean energy commitment in Davis and has assisted with the expansion of local clean energy campaigns in Utah school districts. Muskan is a leader and mentor at U-YES, Utah Youth Environmental Solutions Network, where she supports the development of a new youth-based climate curriculum aimed at providing educational resources, mentorship, and organizing tools to young people in Utah to advance climate justice. Her experiences have cultivated a passion and commitment for community building, organizing, climate education, environmental justice, and understanding what it means to be human. She also cherishes time spent bird watching, gardening, making pottery, and exploring Trader Joes.
