For Rosenell McKenzie, a retired nurse-turned-businesswoman, becoming the first millionaire in Digicel’s ‘Merry Millions’ Christmas promotion was divine intervention.
“This prize is definitely an act of God,” said McKenzie. “Back in 2010, I had an accident and dislocated my hip so I had to get it pinned up. So getting around has gotten quite difficult sometimes. For a while now, I’ve been praying to God to help me buy a small SUV so I can get around much easier, so winning this has come just in time.”
An elated McKenzie added, “Since this is such a blessing, I’m definitely going to be giving something back to my church out of it. I am so thankful! Since Digicel came to Jamaica, I’ve always entered the competitions hoping to win but I haven’t until this time; so it’s really a good feeling to finally win such a wonderful prize.”
David Butler, CEO of Digicel Jamaica said, “We’re very happy to be able to touch one of our customer’s lives in this way at Christmas. We congratulate Rosenell on becoming the first Merry Millionaire and we really hope it will help to make a difference in her life this holiday season.”
