(Scroll down for video) People have been flocking to a mall just to see the “elevator girl.”
Cheridel Alejandrino, also known as Cherry, seemed to be an ordinary woman, who cleaned the restrooms of the mall.
Occasionally, Cherry was asked to fill in as the “elevator girl.”
The job of the elevator girl is to operate the elevator by pressing buttons in order to take people to the floor they want to go. Yes, that is actually a job at one Philippines mall.
Cherry seemed like an ordinary woman, but that was until she started welcoming people in the elevator.
Cherry took her job very seriously, with her bubbly personality and willingness to help shoppers, she welcomed everyone with a smile. She would sometimes sing or dance in order to make people smile.
People enjoyed the elevator ride with Cherry and many would take videos of her during the ride. Some even uploaded their video to the internet. Soon, Cherry became famous and beloved by all.
Some teenagers said they loved Cherry’s smile and friendliness. They also said that they just rode the elevator up and down a few times just to see her interact with customers.
One person, who goes by the name Landzist commented on the video: “I like the way she shook her hips at 0:47 (in the video below) when the elevator opened. All but praise for her. She has the enthusiasm and sense of humor that makes her beautiful inside and out.”
In an interview, Cherry said that she always wanted to be a teacher, but her family could not afford to send her to college. Despite the setback, Cherry said she is always dedicated to her job.
When people walk into the elevator she greets them warmly and she answers their questions. She also gladly gives people directions.
“She is so friendly and informative that she tells people what there is on each floor. She really goes beyond her duties,” one shopper said.
On Tuesday, she was recognized by the mall for her wonderful work. She was presented with a plaque of appreciation by the mall.
