19 years ago, a 16-year-old Briton won the sum of two million pounds by playing the lottery. Today, the young woman lives on social assistance.
In 2005, Britain’s Callie Rogers — then 16 — had a daydream when she won the sum of two million pounds in the lottery. Unfortunately, the money quickly burned his fingers.
A new life punctuated by the holidays
At the time, the carefree and naive teenager, who had become famous overnight, spent her money lavishly: she multiplied the outings and the evenings where drugs flowed freely. But that’s not all ! She also gives in to cosmetic surgery, and continues operations to change her appearance.
At the same time, the young millionaire buys a home for herself and her relatives, thus spending a large part of her earnings. Callie Rogers also chooses to give large sums of money to so-called friends, who have largely benefited from her kindness.
In an interview with the Daily Mail , she explains that the two million pounds was actually a poisoned gift: “ I feel like it happened in another life. I was too young to win the lottery, I don’t think 16 year olds should be able to collect the winnings .
Still according to him, “ it was too much money for someone so young. Even if you say your life won’t change, it does and often not for the better. It almost broke me, but luckily I’m stronger now .
She loses all of her fortune

Callie Rogers aims to become a nurse after her studies. Concerned about the education of her children, she wishes to instil in them the value of money: “ My life revolves around my children and if they want something expensive, they wait for their birthday or Christmas. I am happy to know that they grow up knowing the value of the agent ”
