Silky Joshi Malik Releases Total Nobody Who Ran For Office and Lost-ish

RedShift Strategists Client & Author Silky Joshi Malik Releases Essay Collection, Detailing 2018 Run for Office

(Houston, TX, October 16, 2020)—Houston-based content writing firm RedShift Strategists is pleased to announce the launch of The Total Nobody Who Ran for Office and Lost-ish, an essay collection by Silky Joshi Malik that chronicles her 2018 run for United States Congress and the lessons she learned from her experience. 

“I feel so inspired when I see women of color fearlessly dive headfirst into the world of politics and make an impact. I have always spoken my mind and fought for myself and those around me, but there were so many unforeseen challenges and insecurities that I overcame when I finally decided to throw my own hat into the ring. I wrote this book to inspire young women to partake in politics and to show them that losing has its own perks. This is an extremely important time to share these kinds of stories if we want to see new types of leaders in this country,” says Silky Malik.

Silky’s run marked the first time an Indian-American woman ran for Texas’ 2nd congressional district. Although she came in third, Silky considers the experience an overall win in terms of the lessons she learned about herself, her friends, her family, and the political process.

“Daniel and Alex from RedShift Strategists helped me put my thoughts in order and overcome early bouts of writer’s block. They helped me realize that writing doesn’t need to be perfect at first. It’s more important to get thoughts and ideas onto the page, which spurs more ideas until it all clicks together into one, complete book.”
