“British lottery winner Callie Rogers says despite having spent all but a few thousand of her winnings, she is happier today than she ever was as a millionaire.

Rogers was only 16 and earning £3.60 ($5.50) an hour when she won a National Lottery jackpot worth £1,875,000 (roughly $2,846,812) in 2003, according to the Telegraph. At the time, she vowed to behave responsibly.

But as teenagers often do, Rogers quickly changed her mind and began spending her windfall.”*
