This Sunday's happiness in Barcelona was reflected by a 15-year old boy. He responded confidently to journalists, declaring to the world that his wealth was real. Cosmin Rotariu clarified that he was rich but not millionaire. He is the unassuming owner of number 37142, the first prize of the Child's Draw which is worth 200,000 eruos. Cosmin said, "I'm super talented, I didn't anticipate it, and I'm shaking," with Valeriu his father next to him.
It is important that Cosmin has the support of his parents in order to enjoy his prize. Valeriu explained that the law forbids anyone under 18 from participating in the lottery. He also described how Cosmin found the winning number in her jacket pocket. My wife bought a tenth for Christmas. We took the refund and changed the number in the Administration for the Child. Cosmin and myself went to the Child administration and chose the number that we wanted to be a similar size to my wife's birthday. We chose that one," said Valeriu, an engineer, who arrived in Spain from Romania ten year ago. His wife cleans hotel rooms and he works as an electrician in construction. Valeriu, in full euphoria stated that the best prize was "that the entire family is healthy". He also said that his first investment would be to visit his mother, Romania.
Cosmin, who is a little sister, hopes to become an engineer like her father. His parents believe that this money will help to ensure his education. She assumes she will be returning to Vila de Gracia institute tomorrow, Tuesday. He wants to indulge his whims. She smiles and says, "Maybe a new phone."
