Lucky Shani's chance to take a bite out of the Big Apple.
Shani, aged 23, scooped the pounds 950 five-day/three-night Big Apple break in our Evening Telegraph and Harry Shaw Gamecard promotion.
More than pounds 9,000 worth of holidays are up for grabs in the competition, now in its third week.
Shani, who is studying to be a social worker at Coventry University, lives with her mum and dad, Doreen and Geoff, and her brother Dale, 21, in Wyken.
And, as any good sister would, she's chosen Dale, a business student also at the university, to join her on the Big Apple break.
She said: "I love to shop and thankfully Dale doesn't mind being dragged around the shops. He certainly knows what shopping marathons he's in for in New York. But I might just have to take a spare suitcase or two with me to bring it all back in!"
She added: "We usually go on holiday in the UK, so this will certainly be a bit different. It's going to be great."
New York is famed for its shopping and boasts the world renowned Macy's, Bloomingdales and 5th Avenue.
The siblings will be staying at the Hotel Roosevelt, on Madison Avenue - just a short walk from Time Square and Broadway.
And as well as taking in the sights and sounds of the city, including the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and Central Park, Shani and Dale will have the option to see it all by air - with a helicopter tour of the famous skyline.
Sandra Ciuffini, Evening Telegraph promotions manager, said: "We've had an overwhelming response to the competition.
"These are fantastic holidays and I'm sure Shani and Dale will love New York. I hope they send us a postcard!"
