“At times it feels like winning the lottery has ruined my life” said Britain’s youngest Euromillions winner

At the tender age of 17, Jane Park from Edinburgh in Scotland was living with her mother in a small housing commission unit, and earning $13 an hour doing admin work. But then her life dramatically changed when she won a £1 million Euromillions draw in 2013. Park purchased a couple of properties, a Range Rover, designer hand bags and enjoyed her new found fortune. A few years after winning the lottery, Park who is now 21, claims that the lottery win has more or less ruined her life.

“At times it feels like winning the lottery has ruined my life. I thought it would make it 10 times better but it’s made it 10 times worse. I wish I had no money most days. I say to myself, ‘My life would be so much easier if I hadn’t won’.” said Park.

“People look at me and think, ‘I wish I had her lifestyle, I wish I had her money.’ But they don’t realise the extent of my stress. I have material things but apart from that my life is empty. What is my purpose in life?” Park explained.
