Sophia Thakur is an award-winning, best-selling author and performance poet.
Sophia is the Youth Creator and Educator Ambassador for Jordan’s Jumpman23 women’s squad and will be working on a series of activities throughout the year to empower communities. She has most recently been announced as one of the Forbes under 30 for Arts and Culture within Europe for 2022.
The spoken word artist climbed onto the stage at the age of 16 with a refreshing and intimate take on traditional poetry, and captivated a room full of career professionals. Since then, she has pushed the boundaries of poetry to inspire varied audiences across the world from the Glastonbury stage to the Ted Talks stage to countless mainstream TV and radio stations.
Sophia’s powerful messages on mental health, diversity, politics, self-expression, empowerment, women and wellbeing has led to participation at events organised by Google, Accenture, Nike, The Guardian, The Royal Family, Channel 4, BBC, Viacom and the Liberal Democrat and Labour party. Many of whom she has continued to work with. Sophia has sold out three groundbreaking headline shows across the world, including her book launch at the Jazz Cafe in London.
