Callie Rogers won more than a million on the lottery when she was a teenager. And being young and naive, she squandered most of the money in the space of a decade. Now, 15 years on from her epic win, she has described the dramatic changes her life underwent after she became rich overnight.

In 2003 Callie was a normal 16-year-old who lived in Cumbria, England, with her foster family. At the time, she made her living working as a cashier at a local supermarket, where she earned £3.60 ($4.66) an hour. However, little did she know that her fortunes were about to change.

That year, Callie became the youngest-ever lottery winner in Britain, bagging herself nearly £1.9 million ($2.5 million). But while this was clearly a life-changing amount of money, the teenager failed to make her fortune last.
