This will be one birthday Deisi Ocampo will never forget.

That’s because her father gave her two instant scratch-off lottery tickets for her 19th birthday. While one was not a winner, on the second ticket, Ocampo hit the jackpot.

The lottery ticket was worth $4 million.

Ocampo told “Good Morning America” that she was shaking and sweating when she realized how much she had won.

Still, the level-headed young woman is being practical about her winnings. She says she will keep her job and share the money with her father, so their family can buy a new home. She also wants to use some of the winnings to pay for college, where she plans on becoming a nurse.
