WE ARE WARRIORS
Nicholas Hennink is Paramedic and Singer/Songwriter by both passion and vocation, known for his inspirational music that gives hope to those who need it the most. Nicholas also served as an advanced care paramedic for over a decade. His love of music began during his childhood, playing in bands and creating songs with his acoustic guitar in Cape Town, South Africa, where he was born and raised.
Serving as an Advanced Care Paramedic Nicholas was diagnosed with severe PTSD, seeing things that can't be unseen, he used alcohol as a coping mechanism and was afflicted with an alcohol addiction. Stemming over 6 years of relapses, rehab three times, and watching his life collapse around him, suicide was not far off.
Keeping his daughter and family front and centre in his mind pushed him to heal, and use his gifts to help other people that still struggle.
Nicholas started his campaign “We Are Warriors” during one of his darkest times. Slowly but surely, he started to heal and his mission was born: to spread mental health awareness through his music and advocating for those still struggling.
Nicholas also contributes to foundations that advocate for first responders and their loved ones, as well as their emotional wellbeing.
