“I came from a hard family situation, so I would invest in a home and help my little brothers and sisters. Family came into mind first since we live off of so little.”

“I’d cut [the billion-dollar winnings] in half. Put half of it in what’s going on in Texas, and then spend the other half on a ton of Gucci.”

“I would invest in a home, and in different businesses, all while pursing school. Then I’d start an organization for veterans to build ponds, like an aquaponics system. I’d give it to the veterans who served in wars,” said Hernandez. He maintains his own  aquaponics system as a hobby and believes that it is something that gives you peace of mind.

“I’d help pay off mortgages for my family, and any expenses that came from my cousin’s passing. Then use the rest to take my family on a trip to Japan because that’s my dad’s dream.”

“Use it on my family,” said Piohia. He would like to move his family to a bigger house than their current two bedroom home.
