Every week, a new person is @sweden. For seven days, she or he tweets about life in Sweden, love or work, sharing opinions and ideas along the way. Then, someone else does the same – but differently. Follow our country through our curators. Welcome to Sweden.
Curators of Sweden
Rebecka Stråhlénis @sweden 2018-09-17 to 2018-09-24
Hi there! My name is Rebecka, and I’m a 31-year-old queer woman born and raised in Lund. While I’ve studied in a few different places, including Canada, I always seem to return to my home city. I have a degree in Human Osteology (yup – that’s bones!) but I currently work as the admin and coordinator at a dental lab in Malmö.
I am proud to call myself both a nerd and a geek, and when I get into something I go all in. My hobbies shift, but a longstanding one is board games, and I always want to make things. Lately that’s been jewellery, but who knows, next week I might get back into making clothes, or maybe baking! I love weird, and sometimes unsettling, things. Hey – I did say I studied bones for years! Oh, and my newest obsession is escape rooms. Can’t get enough!
Let’s talk about everything this week! I’m sure there will be some morbid topics (you could say I am a Master of Death with my degree after all), but also talk of sexuality, music, sweets, escaping rooms in less than an hour… frankly, who knows where we’ll end up!
But please know that I will not discuss the outcome of the Swedish election.
The rest of the year you can find me at @pockifish, both on Twitter and Instagram.

@susan_kemp Oooo. Hmmmm. I am pretty fond of their cover of Universal Soldier. Otherwise maybe Wolf? Or This Old Routine.
I’ve never been a big concert person (give me musicals any day though) and went to my first show when I was 21. In… https://t.co/NVI3RlbpjB
@newrulesnewlife That it is overall pretty nice and not what tabloids abroad like to bring up when wanting to scare people.
