Late last week we had the pleasure of interviewing someone who we both find to be inspirational, a future leader and fantastic role model – Richie Hardcore. He stands up for what he believes in and is a great voice for those who cannot be heard, always has a positive attitude, is selfless and an all round good guy.
Richie Hardcore, an inspiring guy we met and liked a lot.
Sometimes Auckland feels like a small place, which is great if you like running into people (which we do). A few weeks ago we strolled up to check out the new Coco's Baretta on K'Road, and bumped into a lovely lady called Barbara who runs the Karangahape Road Business Association.
Richie Hardcore is pretty much a real life superhero. Not only is he a Muay Thai boxing champion, he’s a Community Action Youth and Drugs facilitator for Auckland Council, a personal trainer and a radio host on 95bfm. Plus, he’s a vegetarian who abstains from alcohol and drugs and he avoids materials that use animal products. Bit of a legend!
Among the tattoos on Richie Hardcore's forearm is a song lyric in thick black capital letters that reads: P.M.A ‘TIL I'M D.O.A.
PMA or Positive Mental Attitude sums up the philosophy Mr Hardcore brings to everything he does, including his work as a Community Action Youth and Drugs facilitator for Auckland Council.
