An Inspiring Story

| Filed under: Inspiration

A lucky break!

Rikers Island prison guard Garina Fearon just made the luckiest mistake of her life.

Last month, she went to a bodega to buy a Powerball lottery ticket, but by accident got a Mega Millions….which ended up with her winning the millions!

Fearon was all smiles yesterday at the Downtown Brooklyn Marriott where she went to collect her check!

Six years ago Fearon was down to her last $25 before filing for bankruptcy, and now she is collecting a check for $22,723,873 after taxes (she opted for the lump sum).

Before working at Riker’s she was poverty stricken and had spent most of her life in homeless shelters. She credits her career at the Correctional Facilit for helping her turn her life around.

This is the main reason why she is not ready to say goodbye to her job quite yet. "I don't have the heart to say I'm leaving now — I'm going to take my time and think it over."

WOW! Things are about to change for you girl!!!
