Students from Auckland
When Flora & Jasmine met through a mutual acquaintance at high school, they didn't hit it off immediately. But over time their friendship developed and the 21 year-olds are now best buddies, united in their love of cooking and entertaining.
They work well as a team and each has an uncanny ability to guess what the other is thinking. Flora has recently completed an Arts degree in Psychology and Education and is ready to go out and see the world, she would love to take Jasmine with her. Jasmine is currently studying nursing and she will complete her degree in June 2014. As well as studying full-time, Jasmine works part-time as a mentor for other Pacific Island student nurses.
