Neema Amadala

Hi 👋🏾! I’m Neema. I
create communications messaging that is purposeful, impactful and most importantly, human.



 It’s important to know that my actions, no matter how small, are contributing to change in others’ lives.

I find joy in helping others. Actually, beyond simply finding joy, it gives me purpose. I enjoy helping people learn, be better versions of themselves, and feel less afraid to take action.

The focus of my work is on purpose and impact. Here’s a collection of content and projects I’m proud of:

  • Inspiring, challenging, and encouraging twenty-somethings.

  • Tackling Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 1, 2 & 12 by highlighting the food waste problem.

  • Communicating to corporations how to support the SDGs with the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative.


I’m a collaborative, strategic thinker with strong interpersonal and problem-solving skills. I have 4+ years of experience in communications, PR and marketing – in-house and with a communications agency. I love being part of teams and organizations keen to make a difference.
