Read on to learn more about these change-makers and where they move from.
Name of brand:Ellebox
Your name and title: Taran Ghatrora / CEO
Where you reside: Vancouver, Canada
What makes you tick/what are you most passionate about? I'm passionate about helping create a new generation of thriving, confident and informed young women, who are eager to become the very best version of themselves. At Ellebox, we do this through education and safe, sustainable products. We should have choices, because what goes on your body, goes in your body. For too long, women haven't had a say in the ingredients we use daily (esp for our most intimate body parts).
Tell us one of your values and how you support it in everyday life: Girl power, resilience and support! You can't be what you can't see. I think it's incredibly important for young people to see individuals that look like themselves (ie: women or minorities, achieving great things) I believe in building each other up so we can shatter glass ceilings.
Your go-to self care action/item: A hot shower, moisturizing, throwing on a very fluffy robe, in that order. Doing all that and then curling up with a book and a hot drink, after a long day, makes me feel like a million bucks!
What you love about yourself: When I can make people laugh or make their day by finding a way to help them with something.
How you show love to others: In no particular order, ways I like to show love:
- telling them people they're awesome (and that I love them)
- believing in them and cheering them on
- celebrating them
- being supportive and non-judgmental
Shout out to a human that inspires the Hell out of you (and who you want to give some love to): Right now, I’m very inspired by Rupi Kaur.

Name of brand: Ellebox
Your name and title: Bunny, Co-Founder, COO
Where you reside: Vancouver, Canada
What makes you tick/what are you most passionate about? I'm most passionate about shedding a light and creating a conversation about women's health so we can take control of our own lives + bodies and make informed decisions. I've had PCOS for the last 2 years, and my experience through diagnosis and beyond was terrifyingly bad. I'm driven to keep this from happening to other women through Ellebox.
Tell us one of your values and how you support it in everyday life: Be curious - I think it's extremely important to never stop learning and asking questions. I strongly believe that no question is a dumb question and being curious opens up a world of new opportunities and ideas.
Your go-to self-care action/item: I have 2 go to's that I can always rely on and are complete opposites. If I need some time to wind down, a face mask, junk food + Netflix is my ideal. If I need some air + a break, doing a hike in Vancouver with a good friend is a no-brainer.
What you love about yourself: I love that I can make people laugh.
How you show love to others: I'm terrible at expressing myself with words, so I try to show love to others by my actions.
Shout out to a human that inspires the Hell out of you (and who you want to give some love to): My mom + Mindy Kaling
