Olivia Maniaci


If I was the chosen one to be handed $50,000 I wouldn't be the only one benefiting. My first order of business would be to rub it in my little brothers’ face. I mean, it's only the right thing to do as an older sibling. Once I felt that I have gloated enough I would then put some of the money into his college fund and throw him a few bucks to spend on himself. The next person to see some of this money would be my father. He is, and always will be, the first man in my life so he’s deserving of this money. Whatever my dad did with the money, I’d just want it to be something that made him happy. Whether he wanted to cash out at a vitamin shoppe, go on vacation or simply pay off credit card debit, it’s up to him. My best friend, Jordan, and her family are a huge part of my life. I have no clue where I would be without them. They’d also be seeing some of this money. Even though they wouldn’t want to take it, I would make it happen one way or another. At this point, I’d have to fulfill my girl duties and go on some type of shopping spree. Let’s be real, what girl doesn’t think of the mall and a closet full of clothes when they hear $50,000? With the left over money I would put it in my Michigan First Credit Union account and keep it there for when I get out of college. Maybe I would use it to put a down payment on a car or an apartment. At the end of the day, $50,000 wouldn’t only be beneficial for me but, for the most important people in my life.
