These two ladies left secure executive positions at corporate almost 3 years ago to venture out and start their own business. A-list communications started out as a PR consultancy and quickly grew into the holistic brand experience agency it is today. With their first International Cannes Lions award under their belt this year already, these ladies have proven what girl power is all about.
Their second year with A-list saw them win their first blue chip client… bulk up their team… and both fall pregnant. Just 4 months apart with their second baby girls. Almaza and Alisha had no idea what the next year would have in store for them. Almaza gave birth first and just 3 1/2 months after baby arrived, she suffered a rare post pregnancy complication which resulted in a heart attack at just 33 years old. Almaza underwent a bypass surgery and has come out stronger than ever with the most amazing outlook on life. At a similar time Alisha suffered severe post partum depression which she had to be hospitalized and medically treated for while running the business on her own.
These are two moms who have managed to conquer a lot, through life’s curve balls and day-to-day life, running a phenomenal business, traveling through Africa, raising 4 beautiful girls between the two of them, school, home and families.
