From her first trip to Everest Base Camp as a young woman, Jade Hameister knew what she wanted to achieve - the impossible. Jade battled atrocious weather, unbelievably low temperatures, and a sled that weighed almost twice as much as her to become the youngest person ever to complete the Polar Hat Trick.
Jade began her quest to complete the Polar Hat Trick in April 2016 when she was fourteen. She became the youngest person to ski to the North Pole from anywhere outside the last degree - the point where most people begin - and was named Australian Geographic Society’s Young Adventurer of the Year. But that was just the beginning. In June of 2017, she became the youngest woman to complete the crossing of Greenland, the second largest ice cap on the planet. On January 11, 2018, she arrived at the South Pole after an epic 37 day journey through Antarctica, becoming the youngest person to ski to both Poles and the youngest person to complete the Polar Hat Trick. Accompanied on her journey by National Geographic, Jade's story will be featured in a TV documentary in fall 2018.
This book will motivate and encourage young people to follow their dreams, no matter how impossible they may seem.
