“I AM not here to change the world. I am here to change myself and live a life for the betterment of the world. So I am moving from fashion to passion and from style to lifestyle.”

These were the words of Stephanie Mae Sol, the girl who captured the heart of John Lloyd Cruz in a television commercial of Magic Flakes as well as the ladylove of “Kapitan Awesome” in a TV comedy series aired over TV-5.

Steph, as she wants to be called, is also the ever-energetic girl in a Lipton commercial, stating her “kanina pa” lines with no fuss.

And she is the girl who made Kagay-anons very proud for winning the first ever title Miss Teen Philippines way back in 2004.

Born on January 22, 1990, Steph’s life is every girl’s envy. She once lived a normal life in this blossoming city of Cagayan de Oro. A boyish girl who loves to wear simple clothes who prefers to hang out with her male barkadas. But now, she is the epitome of the youth, an inspiration of beauty and glamour, a total smart lady overflowing with talents.

This down-to-earth lass started her career when she was in Grade 6 while shopping for something to wear on her 12th birthday in a mall in the city. She was spotted by someone who asked her to be one of their models for a fashion show.

She joined the fashion show and proving her innate ability to ramp paired with her beautiful character, she became the favorite talent of local organizers.

According to her, having a beauty title is a life-changing experience as it molded her into what she is now.

During her reign, Steph authored a successful project called “Trash turn into cash” as she encouraged individuals to convert their trash into something useful or convert it into cash like bottles of coke by not throwing it away.

But Steph is not all beauty. She was a consistent honor student at the International School in Cagayan de Oro and graduated with flying colors at the University of Asia and the Pacific (UA&P) with a course in Industrial Economics.

She says feeling homesick while studying in Manila never ruined her dream of finishing her course. She made herself busy. She was part of the UA&P theatre, Dulaang ROC, and was known to be the “Stephanie Sol major in theatre and minor in Industrial Economics” for her exceptional ability to act.
