It's hard to tell the exact form of this plant, due to the lovely pink wash over it all!
I'm going to hazard a guess that this is possibly a Peperomia, most likely Peperomia obtusifolia. Have a look at this website for some more information on this (the picture they have isn't the greatest):Peperomia obtusifolia 'Golden Gate' on Daves Garden.
If it is a Peperomia, these are pretty much one of the easier types of succulent plants for a beginner grower, as they aren't so fussy about having too much water as many others are.
Peperomia in general are more like a regular houseplant, preferring to have a moist soil for longer periods of time.
The flowers when it blooms will be the definitive characteristic, as they're a funny little spire that really doesn't resemble a flower at all.
Happy Succulent Growing!
