    “Get out of your comfort zone!”

    Malia won the silver medal at the Olympic Games Athens 2004, and continues to train today. Her next challenge: to swim cross Lake Titicaca in just 10 days.

    Out of the pool, Malia is in charge of sporting events for Allianz France in Paris, and manages seats to rugby and soccer games owned by Allianz for the sales team.

    Finding a healthy balance

    Sport is an important way for Malia to clear her mind in difficult moments. She approaches challenges with patience and preparation: “We are often our worst enemies when it comes to accepting new challenges. The best way to get there is to start small, and to go step by step.”

    Malia’s career advice? “Get out of your comfort zone! You might be surprised as to where you can use your skills.”

  • Djamal Hamache – Paralympic wheelchair basketball player

    “Don’t give up on your dreams.” 

    Djamal proudly represented the Algerian national wheelchair basketball team as team captain at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games – a memorable highlight to finish his career in sports. 

    Today, Djamal works as a product manager for personal insurance at Allianz France, using agile working methods to define solutions. He appreciates Allianz for its values, social commitments and ability to innovate and adapt to tomorrow's needs.

    Djamal’s life at Allianz

    During his competitive years, Allianz gave him extra time off to prepare for major events like the Paralympic Games. Even as a retired Para athlete, he still stays active. He thinks it’s important for people to choose a physical activity that they enjoy and make it a priority – but be patient in making progress.

    Djamal is determined about the goals he sets for himself, and doesn’t let obstacles stand in his way. So, what career advice does he have for others? “Like in sports, you should never hesitate to take risks, face challenges and avoid settling for your comfort zone. Don’t give up on your dreams.

Mental Wellbeing Coaching by Allianz athletes

Allianz recognizes that mental health is important. In the lives of our athletes, but also the lives of our employees. We asked three of our employees who are familiar with both worlds for their tips to prepare for mentally demanding situations.
