Success can apparently be brought by chance rather than through one's own actions. That was the case with one California teen who won the lottery not once, but twice, in one week’s time.
Rosa Dominguez was driving home from Arizona and made a pit stop at a gas station in Paso Robles, according to the California Lottery.
The 19-year-old Rosa Dominguez, collected a total of $655,555, which she could potentially invest for the long haul. Experts typically recommend that lottery winners find a qualified financial planner to help build their investment portfolio. However, the lucky teen doesn't need a professional to start investing. It’s very crucial for lottery winners to put their money to work sooner rather than later.
Although investing doesn’t cause the net worth to spike as quickly as a lucky lottery ticket, it can get you far. A recent report published by the California Lottery revealed that Dominguez shed a measly $5 on a Power 5’s ticket that quickly morphed into $555,555 when she scratched away. “I was so nervous, I just wanted to cry,” Dominguez told the California Lottery. Her lucky run wasn’t done just yet.
A few days later, she decided to test her good fortune and buy a $5 Lucky Fortune Scratcher from another gas station in Monterey County, according to the California Lottery. The purchase grossed the top prize of $100,000.
The teenage winner recently collected her winnings from the California Lottery’s East Bay District Office in Hayward. It’s not a surprise that the 19-year-old said that she intends to purchase a new car with her fortune, the education system ought to provide adequate financial education to the young generation.
