A formerly homeless woman just won $5million playing the California lottery.

Lucia Forseth was homeless in 2017 but turned things around before winning her millions.

"I only bought one ticket. I closed my eyes and picked that one, and it won! I first thought I'd won a free ticket, but I checked, and it said I won $5 million" said Forseth

She was getting her car's oil changed and scratched the prize winning ticket right outside. Forseth told lottery officials buying a ticket called 2023 has deep meaning.

"Six years ago, I was homeless. This year I am getting married, getting my associate degree, and won $5 million. You never think you have a chance to win it. It is just random. Being homeless just six years ago, I never thought it would happen to someone like me." she said.

Forseth plans on buying a house and investing the rest of her new fortune. Lottery officials said she declined to speak with media.
