Sandra (29) & Akvile (28)

Met 6 years ago at a mutual friend's birthday party.


"In the 6 years we know each other, we've shared a whole damn lot. Ages ago, even a boyfriend. Now, one would think that that's a pretty brilliant reason to hate another girl, right?

Not quite. Sure it wasn't easy dealing with that, but somehow it made us so much stronger.

We're true to each other — be it happy, sad, bad-tempered or foolish. Akvile makes me entirely comfortable with my flaws. Or poor life choices, for that matter. But most importantly, she supports me in my ventures no matter how crazy they might seem. I mean, look at us starting a company together. She's all I could ever ask for."

"The first time I started having a real girl-crush on Sandra was 3-4 years ago, when the two of us went traveling around Asia. Stunning sunsets of Bali, fishing trips, dancing like crazy until sunrise, skinny dipping, even crashing a boat — these are the adventurous experience that truly united us.

But never did I imagine that it will be the hard times that will glue us together so much stronger. Last summer I was going through a breakup. I remember walking home right after "the talk" eyes full of tears when I randomly ran into Sandra.

I showed her all my weaknesses, stood there exposing emotions I usually hide. And that was the moment when everything clicked. She accepted me for what I was and there was no more hiding. 

She was strong for me when I couldn't. And that's what a real girl gang is."
