Best-selling author and director of the inspiring social-change documentary Embrace, Taryn’s global crusade to end the body dissatisfaction epidemic has seen her recognised by the United Nations Women, Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls and the Geena Davis Institute.

Taryn’s determination to shift the way the world thinks about themselves and their bodies has the support of high-profile personalities including Olivia Newton-John, Rosie O’Donnell, and Ashton Kutcher who famously praised her activism as being “good for the world.”

Embrace is a social impact documentary that explores the serious issue of body loathing, inspiring us to change the way we feel about ourselves and think about our bodies. Released in 2016, the film is relevant, relatable, highly engaging – but above all life changing. Nominated for the Documentary Australia Foundation Award for Best Documentary, Embrace has been seen by millions and has created a ripple of positive change across the globe. The documentary was supported by 8909 Kickstarter pledgers who responded to the fundraising trailer released in 2014. The trailer has now had over 45 million views.

Author of three bestselling books, her first title ‘Embrace’ was a US smash hit and the animated song from her latest title, a children’s book ‘Embrace Your Body’ bumped Baby Shark off iTunes number 1 spot!
