When Deisi Ocampo’s (pictured) dad gave her two $100 Million Money Mania instant tickets for her 19th birthday, she never, ever, fathomed that one of them would be a $4 million winner, according NBC News.
While on her way to work on October 7, Ocampo decided to scratch off her lottery tickets. The first ticket she scratched off was not a winner. However when the Chicago teen began scratching off the second ticket, she could not believe her eyes when she realized it was indeed a winner.
Instead of hightailing it back home to let what had just occurred sink in, Ocampo actually went to work at the clothing store where she is employed, covered in sweat and still reeling from her win. “I worked the whole day without saying a word to anyone,” Ocampo told the news outlet.
Ocampo, who also attends college lives with her parents and sister and when she arrived home to share her shocking news, no one believed her! “When I told my dad I won he asked, ‘How much? $500?’ and I said, ‘No, Dad, $4 million,’” she said.
The young millionaire says she plans on using her good fortune to finish putting herself through nursing school and purchase a house for her family.
