Guest Biography: 

Jameela is a beautiful soul. She is the designer and co-founder of Alora Boutique and the the proud mother of two beautiful girls. Giving back to the community has always been an important part of Jameela's life. After serving her community on the Pineridge Community Association Board of Directors for 5 years and earning a Bachelor of Business Administration at Mount Royal University, Jameela decided to start a business, and opted for a social enterprise: Alora Boutique was born.

Alora creates jewelry that adds beauty and meaning to lives while giving back to the local community. Alora has been in existence for almost 4 years. In that time, Jameela and her team have grown Alora to be sold in over 80 stores across Canada and the USA. It is a lovely story of success built on a mission-inspired business.

At Alora, a percentage sales go to local charities that transition women out of poverty. In addition to that, Jameela uses Alora Boutique to bring the community together. Jameela enjoys using Alora as a tool to empower other women. Most recently, Alora organized an International Women's Day Event that saw 200 people come out to support female-run businesses and celebrate the contributions of women in Calgary. That event turned into an all-female entrepreneur summer pop-up market in downtown Calgary.

Jameela believes that the path to female equality is economic empowerment and that we can all support each other to make the dream work. To learn more about Jameela, you can find her online or @aloraboutique on all social media channels.
