John A.K.A. Hone Heta

Te Arawa,

Ko Tarawera taaku maunga
Ko Puarenga taaku awa
Ko Te Arawa taaku iwi
Ko Tuhourangi taaku Hapu
Ko Hone taaku ingoa

Kia ora my name is John Heta and I am one of the original co founding members of Radio NFA from it’s beginnings in Feb 2014..I got involved in this project because it gave us an chance to voice our opinions.

I know,why? because I was one of those rough sleepers and had been for 4 years, I recently just got my housing after so long and trying to make a difference in my life as well as others, I’ve come so far with radio nfa that it has given me the chance to fully commit and change my life for the best through teaching and sharing what i have been taught through A.U.T and Auckland city council..

I now have been accepted to do the diploma of Adult Education which begins in 2016 and am working towards that goal through the kind people whom have accepted and believe in me..I am also learning to speak Te reo maori and hope that my journey continues on from there
so stay tuned and hope you follow my journey with me..Kia ora and much love..John..
