Lamour is the youngest lottery winner in Canadian history, who purchased the ticket on a suggestion from her grandfather.

Lamour said per the Toronto Sun, “I had just turned 18 and my grandfather suggested I buy a lottery ticket for fun.”

The teen said she checked the ticket on the lottery app while at work, and a jingle started to play, with "Big Winner" displayed on the screen.

"My colleague fell to his knees in disbelief. He was screaming, in fact everyone was screaming that I had won $48 million.  At first, I didn't understand what was going on. I couldn't take in the news. We made quite a scene in the store that day.”

Lamour says that once she is done with school, she and her family will “pick a continent and start exploring. I am not a ‘sit-on-the-beach’ type of person.

“I want to experience different countries, study their history and culture, try their food, and listen to their language.”
