Josua Sundqvist Interview

Introduce Yourself: Hello! I’m Josua Sundqvist, a 19-year old filmmaker/adventurer from Finland!

Thoughts On People In The World?: I think we are way too ignorant on certain things, but I still see hope in humanity here and there. We just need to pay a little bit more attention to what’s going on around us, and take action!

What are your inspirations & goals?: My goal is to be able to wake up 50 years from now and say to myself, “I tried my best and I didn’t settle.” My goal is to work as a fulltime filmmaker, and travel the world, or maybe both of them in a combination. My biggest inspiration in filmmaking/travel is Martin Scorsese, Casey Neistat, Jon Olsson and Peter McKinnon!

How would you impact the world?: By inspiring people around me and show that there’s a job out there that you love if you just fon’t settle. Never settle unless you’re happy. If you are happy, then by all means, STAY! I wanna live a kind of different life, take different roads and inspire people to do the same. And also inspire people to travel more, explore this beautiful world and meet new people, new cultures. Last but not least I want to encourage people to face their fears. Nothing like overcoming a fear, and feeling like you took a leap of faith!

Struggles In Life? : I’m a bit of a perfectionist sometimes. Taking action sometimes suffers due to my judgement. “Can I post this?” “Can I make this, it’s not really my style.” And my second struggle is maybe my physical health. Now, I don’t have health problems, but I’m not exercising enough. I need to work that area. I end up using my focus on work as an apology to not take time to work out or go for a run.

How do you feel about yourself? Any changes you would make? : I feel great. I know I’ve taken steps towards my dream and my goals. I know I’m keeping a positive attitude through almost anything. I feel like I’m working on my future, atep by step, to become a better version of myself. I’m happy, I feel.

What does love mean to you?: To me, love means dedicating your life to another person and not having a problem with sacrifies here and there. Love is also a better problemsolver than for instance hate. Love means acceptance, and understanding, it means not judging right away.
