About Me

Having to choose between small talk and deep talk, I'd go for deep talk (such as discussions about the purpose of life, the cultural and individual differences among people and last but not least, about whether a hotdog is a sandwich or not). But if you prefer talking about the weather forecast or Kylie Jenner's lip gloss, I'm ready to accept the challenge.

I moved from Zurich to Lausanne recently to pursue my studies here. There is still a lot for me to discover in Lausanne, so we can join forces ;-)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Sitting at the Ganges in Varanasi, drinking chai and observing life. Wow, there was so much life.

Teach, Learn, Share

If you're interested, I can give you some information about Swiss history and the political structures of Switzerland.
- federal state with 26 states (called Cantons), astonishing level of democratic participation of citizens! (referendum, initiatives), limited judicial review of legislation on the federal level etc.

What I Can Share with Hosts

It would be my pleasure to cook something for you. I can also give you my undivided attention and respect for your opinions and beliefs.
