I am a 31 year old girl from Malta. I am very easy to make friends with, very positive person, lively and outgoing. I would like to meet people, to help each other with German or whatever but my main aim is making friends who are fun to be with and can keep a conversation alive.

Lived one year in Vevey and now I'm here in Zurich
