Selma Kafedzic is my best friend, my soul mate and sister.

No-one ever tells you that your 20s are this challenging. There is very little preparation and advice.

Love and life is something I am constantly questioning and Selma has always been there to listen, rationalise or encourage my impulsive actions and ideas.

I sometimes feel our friendship is one way, the advice and guidance she gives me is something I could never match.

Recently, I reluctantly moved back home from Germany and found that the city I once lived in to be completely different.

A large majority of friends had moved after university and I found I had grown apart from a lot that remained in Wellington. I struggled to settle in and accept my surroundings.

Selma understood, she got it, and with a phone call one afternoon she asked, "What are you doing this evening?... check your emails, I've bought you a ticket to Sydney."

Her on going support, love, fun and passion for life is absolutely invaluable. My world has been enriched with a bestie in it. It's rare in life that you come across a soul mate; I know I'm so blessed to have found the perfect one.
