Fourteen-year-old Jade Hameister had a dream: to complete the Polar Hat Trick. In 2016, she skied 150-km to the North Pole; the youngest person to do so. In 2017, she completed the 27-day, 550-km Greenland crossing; the youngest woman to do so. In 2018, she arrived at the South Pole after skiing 37 days, 600-km, unsupported and unassisted, along a new route from the Amundsen coast; becoming the youngest person to do so. This is the story of an adventurer who never gave up - who set herself incredible challenges beyond her years and experience. An adventurer who endured extremes of cold and blizzards; tackled treacherous terrain where one wrong step could be fatal; struggled through sastrugi, ice rubble and emotional lows to achieve an extraordinary goal.

Along the way, she made a sandwich for online trolls, inspired young people, and made international headlines. At sixteen, Hameister became the youngest person in history to complete the Polar Hat Trick.
