This year Aussie slam poet champ, and all round legend, Solli Raphael has signed up to be a Polished Man ambassador. The Project chats to him live at the desk to learn about this young man's dream to help his generation.
"In the fusion of rap, rhyme and passion, slam poetry, says Raphael, gives him a voice to promote social and environmental change among his own peers, and he is not waiting on Australia's politicians to act first. Change is needed now, he says." - Linda Morris (The Sydney Morning Herald)
Teen Slam Poet Solli Raphael has a message for our politicians.
"I think that everyone [in power] needs to know what they should be representing, because not many people in Australia or in the world are representing what they should be ... [We need to] acknowledge the past and the future. I think we need to have a good focus on both."
