Friederike Sandow – Sex / Heart / Partnerships & Events

Is into this because she loves the European Union and therefore isn’t getting tired of pointing out its flaws because hope always dies last. Originally from the Baltic Sea in Germany, she has received the most compliments for her colourful summer dresses, could live without soup and asparagus, drinks coffee and beer simultaneously while working for E&M, and studied International Relations. If you meet her, make her giggle and just be your awkward self, she loves that.
