My First Job: Joyce Mitchum
• Name: Joyce Mitchum
• Age: 46
• City of residence: Victoria
• Current title: Realtor
• First job: I worked at Kindercare Daycare to earn tuition money for my first semester of college.
• What it taught me: I learned patience and that I wanted to have children someday. I also learned that, if you put your mind to it and did the work, you could save the money and go to school. That job also helped me with my current job because, in driving the kids to daycare, I learned the different street names around Victoria.
