Canada Mortgage & Financial Group
In male-dominated industries, it takes empowered, influential female leaders to reverse the stereotypes that can hinder women’s successes in the workplace. It also takes mutual recognition of shared goals and a willingness to uplift other women to become successful leaders. Judging by her relentless motivation in the face of personal challenges and a broad range of obstacles, Ameera Ameerullah is well on her way to becoming one of those inspiring leaders.
“Many times, I received no guidance or support from others in the industry, leaving me to determine my direction on my own when I started in the industry,” she says. Other challenges include not receiving payment of earnings, lost motivation as a result, losing relationships with lenders due to quota challenges – and that’s only on the professional front. She also suffered a major car accident, which left her handicapped and unable to walk for months, yet she continued to work through these challenges and eventually ascended to her current position as principal broker for Canada Mortgage & Financial Group.
“Gladly, I have overcome each challenge and managed to find the strength to move forward every time,” she says.
