Solange is a 36 year old mother of two; Hazel who is 5 years old and late baby Juan who passed away at 9 weeks old. She has been happily married to Antoine for the past 6 years. Together with her husband they have been running Fifteen37 Cafe for the past 10 years.
Solange used to work at a local bank for 8 years before joining her husband at the cafeteria. She is a very positive person and a sports lover. She has been practicing CrossFit for the past 5 years. She was always into sports from a very young age. Thanks to her parents she started playing tennis as a 4 year old. She used to dance Latin American and Ballroom Dancing. She took part in various local races like The Malta Half Marathon and many 5k and 10k road races. She also participated in obstacle races both locally and abroad- The Grid Malta and Tough Mudder in the UK.
She also used to take part in TV programmes like Tista Tkun Int and Maltese Drama Gizelle. Unfortunately recently Solange lost her baby Juan at just 9 weeks old to a brain tumour. She spent 5 very hard weeks at hospital taking care of her baby until he took his last few breaths. Juan was only diagnosed at 4 weeks old.
No matter what Solange got up and continued off where she left before she lived at hospital. She did this thanks to all the support and love received; and also through sports.
