 At 12, Solli Raphael was the youngest winner of the Australian Poetry  Slam held at Sydney Opera House annually. A budding humanitarian, Solli enjoys  writing powerful and emotive poetry and performing pieces to instigate change in the areas he feels are critical for attention and action such as social equality, the environment and animal protection.

Solli loves hanging out with his Chihuahua, Winston, and spending time with his friends at the beach, playing sport or watching movies. When  not writing poetry, Solli particularly enjoys challenges such as  breaking personal fitness records to keep fit. As well as his high school work and performing at festivals and public speaking events, this motivated teen enjoys playing the saxophone, swimming, and drama.

Now 14, Solli Raphael is keen to use the platforms of performing and writing to tackle current social issues – big and small. 

Successfully publishing his first book, Limelight, by Penguin  Random House in Australia, and Andrews McMeel in Northern America, Solli encourages his generation to participate in conversations about issues that affect their lives and their future, sending out the challenge to be  game changer with him.

Remember to tag Solli if you're reading his book or snap a selfie with him or even if you'd like to share your own poetry with him, and use the hashtag;
