LEON SUNDLOF, 18, Sweden at Menace

reflecting isolation

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

LEON SUNDLOF: I've tried my best to stay active and healthy during this time. And I'm currently getting homeschooled so that's helping me a lot while stopping me from getting bored.

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

LEON SUNDLOF: I've been maintaining my workout routine so I can remain in shape and I have been doing a lot of homework.

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

LEON SUNDLOF: The scenario is scary, it kind of feels like we're living in a movie, one of those end of the world ones. My hope is that this is all going to get sorted out soon and the death count will stop.

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

LEON SUNDLOF: It's a hard situation to handle. I do think that Sweden's government was kind of slow shutting down airports. But as I said, when you think about all the millions of people you need to look after and attend to, it is a very difficult situation for any government. And it gets extra challenging when people are out partying while the government has told you not to go out. I think this is very irresponsible, so, stay at home!

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

LEON SUNDLOF: Paris 1919 by John Cale.

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

LEON SUNDLOF: There is a series on Netflix called Bodyguard and it is one of my favourites and a must-watch.

F WORD: A hopeful statement to encourage others:

LEON SUNDLOF: We survived Influenza back in 2009, and we're going to survive this one as well!
