FREDDIE CAMPBELL, 17, London at Menace

reflecting isolation


F WORD: How have you been dealing with the whole isolation thing?

FREDDIE CAMPBELL: I’ve just been keeping my head down, everyone in my house got COVID-19 so I had to stay away from everyone until they fully recover.

F WORD: What have you been doing to occupy your time and mind?

FREDDIE CAMPBELL: I’ve been doing some exercise every day, chatting with friends and walking my dog in the sunshine and I have been playing Xbox as well.

F WORD: How are you feeling about the COVID-19 pandemic?

FREDDIE CAMPBELL: I feel like there’s a lot more going on than we are being told and that it’s extremely serious, but I have doubts about the way it started. You know, how much of the news can we actually trust? I think there is always a lot of things they say on the news which are not accurate or even true.

F WORD: What are your thoughts on how our government and the world is dealing with it?

FREDDIE CAMPBELL: Generally, I feel governments are doing what they can to stop the spread, but people aren’t taking it seriously enough here in the UK. I think now people are respecting the lockdown better but it took us some time to get people doing what they as asked to do.

F WORD: What would be your perfect soundtrack for this time?

FREDDIE CAMPBELL: 'Blanco' by Shippuden, 'FAXTS' by 2KBABY, 'From Time' by Drake, and 'We should' by Lil Baby.

F WORD: Can you suggest a movie/series/or book we should check out during isolation?

FREDDIE CAMPBELL: Check out Breaking Bad, Peaky Blinders, Top Boy and Power.

F WORD: A hopeful statement to encourage others:

FREDDIE CAMPBELL: Stay inside, keep strong and the more we listen to what the government advises, the quicker we’ll all get through this and be able to have a great summer.

F WORD: Favourite F-word:

FREDDIE CAMPBELL: Freddie; just because that’s my name!
