Two young women who met as children in Hawaii a decade ago have been reunited after not seeing each other since then. It happened this week on the Ellen DeGeneres show.

10-years-ago, the girls met each other as children while their families were taking a boat cruise. They say they became best friends for one night.

Last month, one of those girls posted a photo to twitter in search of her long lost pal. The post gained more than 120,000 retweets overnight and less than a day later, her friend saw it and responded.

The two were both given $10,000 from Ellen to go towards their studies.
