Canadian Teen Gets an Exclusive Gift on her 18th Birthday for a Life Time!

A Canadian teenager gets an exclusive gift on her 18th birthday after she hits a jackpot when she buys a lottery ticket. From now, for an entire lifetime, she will be having $1000 per week. Okay, this is something a jaw-dropping news. But you don’t have to actually open your mouth! *wink*

The lucky Charlie Lagarde belongs to the province of Quebec. She without having any instinct scratched a ticket which she got along with a champagne bottle to celebrate her 18th birthday on 14 March.  

When she won the jackpot, she had to choose between two things; taking a C$1m ($780,000; £550,000) lump sum or earning $1,000 a week for life.

She talked with her financial advisor and with right consultancy she opted for the second option to get $1000 grant per week because no tax added to it.

"It's without taxes so it's equivalent to a salary of more than $100,000 a year, so it's a great start in life for that young lady," Patrice Lavoie, a spokesman for the lottery corporation, told the Canadian Press.

"That was her first lottery ticket ever and she fell upon a winning ticket."

She decides to spend this money on her education and to fulfill her travel wishes.

"I want to study photography. One of my dreams would be to work for National Geographic," she told Loto Quebec.

So, what’s your idea? Are you a very unfortunate person or she is an extraordinary fluky young girl?
