My name is Muna Gasim, I am currenty enrolled in an honours Bachelors of Arts degree in Professional Communication at Ryerson University. My passions include writing poetry, fashion, beauty and art. Therefore I decided to launch a lifestyle blog titled Myconik.com one year ago. Myconik.com is essentially a passion project that has provided me with a forum to grow my personal brand and share what I love.

While blogging is a passion, I have always known that my true desire lies in entrepreneurship. This is the goal that I am working towards. My very first endeavor into entrepreneurship was in my last years of high school in Dubai where I decided to start a fashion styling business. As with all learning experiences I realized that I hadn't yet had the opportunity to learn the real scope and depth of what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. Therefore I decided to put this aside and focus on my education. I then went on to study a degree in mass communications with a concentration in journalism. It was during this time that I had the opportunity be mentored by the head of communications for a company in the music business. I am extremely grateful for that opportunity because it provided me with both work experience and knowledge in social media, storytelling, branding and writing. It was here that I was honored to be allowed to write about the Thai Royal Family's history for the company's in-house magazine.

After moving to Toronto I was the beauty editor for an online fashion magazine titled stylecircle.com. As this magazine had over 30,000 views per month, being beauty editor was a wonderful opportunity for me to combine my passion for the beauty and fashion industry with my writing skills. I then went on to be Marketing Lead for their first ever print magazine titled the Book by StyleCircle. After that I decided to focus on Myconik.com and growing my personal brand. Currently I am open to learning as much as I can from experienced entrepreneurs. As an avid believer in life-long learning, I hope to leverage all of this knowledge to launch Myconik into a full fledged fashion and beauty brand, that will one day encompass both a fashion and beauty line. Till then I am eager to work and learn as much as I can, and to build by personal and professional brand as a key player and influencer in the communications world.
