Jerome Le Carrou, Founder, speaking at the Irish Chamber of Commerce in China.
“As a French exchange student in the United States, I had the opportunity to live in a global  community with students from Taiwan, Japan, Brazil, Peru, Hong Kong, England, Spain, China and the United States. This experience opened my eyes to the ways of a broader world.

After completing my bachelor’s degree that year, I applied for a Master’s degree in Journalism and Communications but eventually decided to take a year off prior enrollment to venture to the Far East and gain necessary work experience in my future work field with the hope to discover and experience a new way of life.

I landed in Shanghai in December 2005 and was immediately caught by this extraordinary destination. During my four-month internship, I had the chance to get my work published, and most importantly, this internship opened new dimensions of life and opportunities.

Four months later, I was convinced that this experience had changed the course of my life. As I had experienced it myself, I decided to create Next Step Connections for students like me who wish to gain personal development, find their professional path and ultimately reach their full potential.”
