Cherry Toledo came from a broken family in Cebu. When she was told that her aunt could no longer continue supporting her education because of other financial responsibilities, Cherry had no choice but to earn for herself so she could finish her schooling. While eating at McDonald’s, she found an ad looking for part-time employees. Cherry applied, knowing that McDonald’s would fit all her needs, especially as a working student.
From just thinking of a job as a means to earn money, to realizing it was an extension of school where she could learn so much, Cherry grew as a person at McDonald’s in more ways than she could have expected.
