The Team

All our team members have experienced at least one, but often several, international experiences that profoundly changed the way they view the world and themselves.
In their own way, they are all committed, involved, enthusiastic and ready to help anyway they can. And, of course, they all committed to helping young people learn differently, figure out what comes next, and feel good about their choices and themselves.

Antonie Desprez

100% committed and loyal, Antonie attaches great importance to giving her all to projects that make sense to her. Her ability to bounce back and her desire to learn keep her constantly moving forward – complacency is a word she has never heard of!

Her main goal every day? Putting a smile on your face!


Larhi Miharantsoa

Development and Digital Marketing Assistant

Compassionate by nature, Larhi places great importance on understanding people and the way they view the world. Always available for others and a great listener, he seems have all the makings of a great negotiator. Larhi loves all sports in general but would choose football if he had to choose just one. And, he definitely knows what it means to be part of a team.

Antonie and Larhi know what they’re talking about when it comes to the advantages of taking a year off to travel internationally. They both had the experience to do just that through two different professional experiences that significantly impacted their way of seeing the world and helped them learn more about themselves.
