Name: John Barela

Age: 49

City of residence: Victoria

Current title: Painter and home improvement store employee

First job: I helped my father, Ramon Barela, out with plumbing jobs when I was 9 years old.

What it taught me: I learned that no matter what job you do, you should be proud of it. Everybody has a purpose, and every job is important.
