Humble Roots

From the Philippines to the Maldives and on to all the way across the world to Paris is a story of a triumphant girl who worked and worked till she had the life she absolutely dreamt of. Travel has always been her passion and it was extravagantly molded to shape during her early years in the Maldives.  When Cherie was asked what made her move to the Maldives for work nearly a decade ago her answer has always been so simple - “It’s the Maldives, it’s paradise… who wouldn’t want to work there? I was young, full of hope and a vision for myself.” And there she was working as a destination specialist in the Maldives and Sri Lanka, living it up…

She was working from home before it was a trend…

As exotic as the Maldives is, Cherie always knew when she met the love of her life that better things are out there for her and not necessarily in the Maldives. With this hope of new beginnings, she decided to end a rather exciting chapter of her life in the Maldives and move to Paris. However, she was most uncertain about leaving the industry that she’s grown to love so much – Travel. This is when she becomes part of our OV Holidays Family again. 

OV is all about having members who are passionate about what they do, and it has been an absolute delight to have her on board as one of our freelance travel advisors, working from home, on a commission basis and at the times that are ideal for her. She has a steady and substantial income and freedom above all.

“You don’t need to have years and years of experience in the industry of about Maldives. That is the beauty of this industry. I got all the training I need from OV and the team is always there to help me out. So, dare to dream of having the work-life you absolutely require.

“And Always, always put your client first. The key to my success and the substantial income I make from home is through very strong customer service. In a world full of online booking engines, travelers really do appreciate the personal touch, the extra mile you’d be willing to go to make their holiday special. If you live by this mantra, you will be winning every day! “
