Who hasn’t dreamed of winning the lottery? But winning twice … in one week … at 19?

Rosa Dominguez, 19, is seen in a photo shared by the California Lottery.

That’s what happened to one lucky California teen, Rosa Dominguez.

Dominguez was driving home to Monterey County from Arizona when she stopped at a gas station in Paso Robles and bought a few scratch-offs.

One of the $5 scratch-offs bought turned out to be a winning ticket worth $555,555.

“I was so nervous, I just wanted to cry” Dominguez told the California Lottery.

Just days after winning over half a million dollars, she stopped at a different gas station near her home in Greenfield.

She bought another $5 scratch-off — and she won again. This time: $100,000.

So, what will this teen do with her $655,555 winnings?

What many of us would — teen or not: go shopping and buy a new car, she said.
