Name: Jaime Valdivia
City of residence: Victoria
Current title: Owner of Blue Lagoon Aquariums
First job: I worked as a dishwasher at the Downtown Bar & Grill when I was 15 or 16 years old.
What it taught me: That job taught me the value of a dollar. I got paid minimum wage at the time and realized that, if you wanted to buy something, you really had to work for the money.
