Kena Paranjape

Founder of All You Are

Kena is the founder of All You Are, as well as a writer, speaker, and co-founder of the Toronto store, BRIKA. The All You Are robe was designed for everyday life - flipping pancakes, playing with your kids, opening the front door, or spending a lazy Sunday in.

Kena Paranjape is an entrepreneur, writer, speaker and the Founder of All You Are. She is passionate about inspiring others to live well everyday and harness their creativity to create a fulfilling life.


In 2007, at the age of 30, Kena’s husband became suddenly and mysteriously critically ill. After five months in the intensive care units of several hospitals, he recovered enough to come home but with a permanent condition that needed to be carefully managed. Over the course of the next seven years, Kena and her husband managed his health on a daily basis until his passing in 2014.


Kena experienced first hand how quickly life can change, forcing you to not only adapt but to actively choose how your story will unfold. While there is much we cannot control, we have more agency over our lives than we realize. Through her journey, she also came to understand the power of committing to living well regardless of our life circumstances. This journey inspired her to create All You Are.
