Georgia Munn and Poppy Dodge
"I moved around the US a lot as child so I know how hard it can be to make friends. But in 2013 my husband got a job at Weta and we moved from California to Wellington. We're lucky that Kiwis are so friendly and this is home now. Two years ago I met Georgia at work and I can't imagine life without her.
"Poppy and I couldn't be more different – she has a husband, kids and lives in the suburbs, she's American and has had all these exciting adventures. I was born in Christchurch and moved to Wellington for university and now live with my partner Jack and three flatmates in an inner-city apartment.
Ginny Maddock and Tania Siladi
"I've always had older friends who I looked to for their experience. All through my career – from modelling in Hong Kong to working in New York and getting into the restaurant industry – I've been lucky enough to have older friends mentor me. So I've always tried to do the same with younger staff.
"When I first met Tania I thought she was scary because she would come into the restaurant and notice tiny things that needed our attention. But when I got to know her, I realised she's just really detail-focused.
