They met five years ago when Monica joined the operations department in the Royal Canadian Navy. They bonded over their work and the challenges they face each day in their jobs.

They hope to empower young woman considering taking on traditionally male-dominated careers.

Eh, don’t be

You’re almost always going to have ‘haters’ in life, even when you’re doing something special, important, meaningful, and even pure/good

Don’t let yourself get hurt by careless words of others, but continue fighting to be a champion of love, hope, and positivity

It’s not always easy, but at some point comments like that will just make you chuckle- like much of the rest of us are

A lot of hair Monica tucks under that hat. She looks almost like a different person without it :o

I think we should make RFF a member-only area. An exclusive club! I am loving the new format Peach has done for TAR 31.

It’s a race against stereotypes for two all-female Amazing Race Canada teams

Another all-female GTA team, navy members Zainab Ansari and Monica Demian, is hoping their ability to stay calm and work under pressure will serve them well during the Race.

Ansari, 32, is a naval combat information operator from Hamilton whose 13 years in the navy included a six-month tour of duty in Afghanistan. Demian, 23, a naval communicator, was born in Sudan and raised in Markham, and joined the navy five years ago, which is when she and Ansari became fast friends.

Both were raised by single mothers who their daughters say sacrificed a lot for their children and still work hard: Demian’s as a parking enforcement officer; Ansari’s as a border services agent.

“They continuously put us before themselves. They gave up their dreams just to make sure we live ours,” Demian says. And they still don’t put themselves first, says Ansari, whose parents were born in India.

So making their mothers proud — and taking care of them financially if they win the $250,000 cash prize — is goal No. 1 for the friends. They also want to represent Canadians, visible minorities and strong females. Even though they work in a male-dominated field, they say they both feel free to be themselves.

“If nothing else comes out of us being on this show (it’s) that visual of two women serving and in uniform, and clearly doing something that they’re passionate about and that they love, and they’re happy,” Ansari says.
