The girl won $ 35,7 million by buying her first lottery ticket
A girl from Canada has become the youngest lottery winner to win a tens of millions of dollars jackpot in the country. For the first time in her life, a lottery ticket bought immediately brought her such good luck! Writes about it Independent.
18-year-old Juliette Lamour won 3 million Canadian dollars ($48 million) on February 35,7.
“While there have been other 18-year-old lottery winners in Canada in recent years, no one has won as much as Juliet,” the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation said in a statement.
Lamour said that her grandfather offered her the first ticket to celebrate her 18th birthday.
“I just turned 18 and my grandfather suggested I buy a lottery ticket for fun,” she said.

“When I arrived at the store, I did not know what to do, because I had never bought a ticket before, so I called my father and he told me to buy a LOTTO 6-49 Quick Pick. I still can't believe that I won the jackpot thanks to my first lottery ticket,” the winner admitted.
As Lamour said, she subsequently forgot that she had bought a ticket.
The lucky woman checked her ticket in the lottery application when colleagues said that the winning ticket was sold in Sault Ste. Marie.
And when the ticket was scanned in the app, the winner's ringtone played and the phone displayed "Big Winner".
“My colleague fell to his knees in bewilderment. He was screaming, in fact everyone was screaming for joy that I won $48 million,” shared Lamour.
The girl plans to "carefully" invest money on the advice of her father.
Juliette says the win will help her fulfill her dream of pursuing a medical degree and becoming a doctor without having to take out loans or grants.

She plans to return to northern Ontario to practice medicine and help her community.
“After graduation, my family and I will choose a continent and start exploring it,” Juliette admitted. “I want to get to know different countries, learn about their history and culture, taste their food and listen to their language.”
Lamour assured that despite the win, she would focus on her work and not the jackpot.
“Money doesn’t decide who you are,” she says. “The work you do defines you.”
