Lottery Winner Hits It Big With First Ticket She Ever Bought

When you turn 18 and become a legal adult, one of the things you can finally do is buy a lottery ticket. So on Charlie Lagarde’s 18th birthday on March 14, the teen from Quebec bought her first lottery ticket. And as if that wasn’t exciting enough, it was a winning ticket for the $1-million jackpot.

The wise young woman consulted with a financial advisor before deciding to take $1,000 a week for the rest of her life instead of the $780,000 lump sum after taxes. She is only 18, so that’s a lot of weeks to collect that $1,000. Now she plans to use the money to pay for her education and to travel before pursuing her dream of working for National Geographic.
