    Hallo!

    I'm trying to say "First and foremost, i will tell you a bit (of information) about myself."

    My attempt is "Zuallererst, werde ich dir ein paar (Information) über mich erzählen."

    I know in that in English, just saying "a bit" would sound okay, but would that be acceptable in German?

    All help is appreciated, thanks in advance!

    You can simply say Zuallererst werde ich dir ein bisschen über mich erzählen - it isn't necessary to add anything like 'information' here, at least not in informal speech.

    Zuallererst möchte ich dir...
    Als erstes möchte ich dir...
    Lass mich damit beginnen, dir ein wenig über mich zu erzählen.


    Both in English as well as in German I feel "first and foremost" and "zuallererst" a little bit to strong to introduce some initial information.
