Le contenu du document

 

DOCUMENT A

In a chic SoHo loft that cost her $2,000 a month, Samantha flung her office crap at the floor and fell onto the sofa. She clutched her cell phone, but waited. She breathed deeply, eyes closed, emotions somewhat in check. She needed her mother's voice and reassurance, but she did not want to sound weak, wounded, and vulnerable.

The relief came from the sudden realization that she had just been freed from a job she despised. Tonight at seven she might be watching a movie or having dinner with friends, not slaving away at the office with the meter running. This Sunday she could leave the city with no thoughts whatsoever about Andy Grubman and the pile of paperwork for his next crucial deal. The FirmFone, a monstrous little gadget that had been glued to her body for three years now, had been surrendered. She felt liberated and wonderfully unburdened.

The fear came from the loss of income and the sudden detour in her career. As a third-year associate, she was earning $180,000 a year in base salary, plus a nice bonus. A lot of money, but life in the city had a way of devouring it. Half evaporated in taxes. She had a savings account, one she halfheartedly acknowledged. When you're twenty-nine, single, and free in the city, in a profession where next year's package will exceed this year's salary plus bonus, why worry too much about saving money? She had a friend from Columbia Law who'd been at S&P for five years, had just made junior partner, and would earn about half a million this year. Samantha had been on that track.

She also had friends who jumped off the treadmill after twelve months and

happily fled the awful world of Big Law. One was now a ski instructor in Vermont, a former editor of the Columbia Law Review, a refugee from the bowels of S&P who lived in a cabin by a stream and rarely answered his cell. In just thirteen months he had gone from an ambitious young associate to a mildly deranged idiot who slept at his desk. Just before HR intervened, he cracked up and left the city. Samantha thought of him often, usually with a twinge of jealousy.

DOCUMENT B

Teenage millionaire: The year I won the lottery

Jane Park was just 17 when she won £1m with her first ever lottery ticket. How did the big win affect one of Scotland's youngest lottery millionaires?

In the summer of 2013, Jane had left high school and was working in a temporary

admin job for a charity organisation. She had split up with her boyfriend and was living with her mother in a two-bedroom flat in south-east Edinburgh.

Jane tells the BBC documentary Teenage Millionaire: "I'm from a council estate called Niddrie. It's not exactly Beverley Hills. People who are not from there think it's errghh but I think it's alright because all my family are from here and everyone knows each other."

Lucky dip

At the end of July last year, Jane saw a lottery sign outside a local shop and decided to buy a lucky dip ticket for the first time. She says she wasn't even sure she was old enough to do the lottery, thinking you had to be 18.

Jane announced her £1m win on Facebook, complete with astonished-face emoticons. Her best friend Danielle thought it was "a wind-up". But it was all real. Jane was one of the UK's youngest-ever lottery winners and her life was about to change.

"Plain Jane from Niddrie was on the news," she says.

The newspapers came calling and a chauffeur-driven limousine took her to her photo-call, "with me wearing a Primark1 dress", Jane says.

Her granny Anne was shocked that they would give such a huge sum to someone so young.

"It's like giving someone a gun," she says. Granny Anne adds: "People like us just don't have that kind of money."

For Jane, the first few weeks were "overwhelming". As well as the constant questions about what she was going to do with the money, there were some nasty comments on social media, which she found hard to shake off.

Her mother Linda says: "When she won the lottery she was sitting here crying. It was too much stress for her."

Jane says: "The hardest decision was to decide how much to give my family and friends. Not something that would leave me short but not something that they would say, 'Is that it?' I didn't want them thinking she's being a bit tight2 there."
