Lama Riachi

Lama, co-founder of Blessed, completed her Masters degree in Art Direction and Advertising from the Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts in 2000.

She has 15 years of brand, advertising & marketing communication experience working with global network agency Saatchi & Saatchi as Creative Director. Lama was responsible for several major FMCG brands across the Middle East & Africa. Currently she is Managing Partner and Creative Director at Mojo, an independent boutique advertising, design & digital agency and art gallery.

When not helping create, define and guide client’s brands she is working hard to become a certified chef at Matthew Kenney Culinary, studying raw food cuisine and culinary nutrition.

Her biggest recent achievement is having survived cancer. An eye-opening experience that led her to start applying her knowledge and experience capital to making a real difference.

Through a chance encounter with an individual needing help a small group was formed primarily for sharing healthy tips for healing. From the original 3 people it quickly grew to attract it’s current 76 members; this group was called Blessed, and continues to grow and help those in need.
