I’m sure we’ve all dreamed of winning big money whenever we play the lottery or buy a scratch off ticket. Well, this 19-year-old just won on her first try and taking home that check! 

Laniah Ashley, who’s a freshman at University of North Carolina Wilmington, went home during spring break, where she celebrated her birthday with her grandparents. Ashley bought herself a $20 100X The Cash scratch-off ticket and when she returned from dinner and scratched off the ticket, it was winner. 

Ashley said, “At first, I kept it to myself because I didn’t want to sound crazy. I was too excited to believe it was true. I kept looking at the numbers and reading the rules over and over again. I was too stunned to speak.” The first year student  received a total of  $71,016 after taxes. Ashley says, she plans to use her winnings to attend medical school and help out her grandparents.
