She admitted that many doubted she could make it in the Army because of her small physique but she proved everyone wrong.

Growing up in a broken family with her father in jail, Chery had no choice but to work to make ends meet. At 18 years old, Cherry lived with her grandmother as her parents could no longer support her. Initially, her aunt paid for her tuition fees so she could continue her studies until the support ended.

She applied and received a full scholarship from Aboitiz to pay for her tuition and miscellaneous fees. However, she still needed money to pay for her daily expenses and boarding house.

Cherry didn't let poverty get in the way of her dream of finishing college. While she studied in the morning, she worked night shift at McDonald's so she could finance her studies and help her young brother as well. She goes to work at 6PM and finishes 12 midnight..

With hardwork and sheer determination, Cherry graduated in magna cum laude. On her graduation photo, she posed wearing her service crew uniform to inspire everyone the hardwork she put into achieving her dream.
