NAME: Josh Moss
CURRENT POSITION: Studying a bachelor of film
WHERE IS YOUR HOME TEAM: The city of Sydney
WHO DO YOU PLAY FOR NOW: Sydney
WHAT’S YOUR GAME PLAN: Keeping very motivated and always looking to move forward with whatever I do. As I am studying a bachelor of film I would really like to pursue this when I graduate. I also love keeping fit and healthy, it’s what gets me through those tougher days! Last but definitely not least is to spend my free time with close friends and just muck around and be stupid. This is one of my best talents, if you could call it that!
WHAT’S YOUR STRATEGY TO ACHIEVE IT: Always staying positive and keeping a good attitude even if you come across a few hiccups along the way. When you take a step in the right direction, it is important to reward yourself. I have also started a small-scale film production company with a friend and we only just had our first paid job filming an opera show at local theatre. Although it was a small gig it was a good experience, and remember even Spielberg would have started small.
LIST 1 OR 2 ‘GOLD MEDAL’ MOMENTS IN YOUR LIFE: Recently I had a friend of mine go through a pretty rough break up and on top of that a few personal family issues as well. I simply asked him if he wanted to have a chat about everything not realising how severely hurt he was. We were only supposed to chat for 30 minutes or so however we ended up speaking for 3.5 hours in what was an extremely emotional and all on the table sort of chat. Later that night my friend called me and told me that before our chat he was thinking about some very, very dark thoughts and thanked me so much for taking the time to help him. All this was very significant to me as it outlined to me that by simply asking someone if they are “alright” or if they “want a chat” it can sometimes change their whole outlook on life.
WHO ARE YOUR CHAMPIONS: I have always looked up to my mother and father, as through thick and thin they have always stood by and supported me. Without them I don’t know where I would be today!
IN YOUR OPINION, WHAT MAKES AN EVERYDAY CHAMPION: Someone who never gives up on their dream, no matter what the criticism, how tough the road there will be and whatever sacrifices they have to make. The vision of making the dream into a reality outweighs all those things.
WHAT’S YOUR MOTTO: A lion doesn’t lose sleep over the opinion of sheep.
