“JLL is a unique and vivid workplace. We are making miracles every day.”
2018 was an unusual year for Cherry. She was able to add a new experience to her CV alongside her day role as negotiator for JLL’s Macau retail team – that of being crowned Miss International Macau 2018.
She then represented the city in the Miss International 2018 pageant in Tokyo. The experience has enhanced her ability to communicate with a greater diversity of people from different backgrounds and to better collaborate as a team, a skill which she can bring back to the workplace.
“Management understood that I would be away from the office for a short period of time to participate in the beauty pageant, but they were supportive in my achieving this goal. I feel a greater sense of responsibility after becoming Miss International Macau 2018. I will do my best to promote Macau around the world,” Cherry says.
Since joining JLL as a fresh graduate, she has specialised in retail leasing, primarily for the entertainment, leisure, beauty and fashion industries. Entertainment, in particular, is one of the industries that is specific to Macau, a city whose primary industry is tourism and hospitality.
“I am passionate about these sectors so they are really suitable for me. My job as an agent doesn’t change though. It’s to help clients tackle obstacles, and these are different case by case,” she adds. Cherry hopes to strengthen her capabilities and set a new ambition for herself.
