HEAR HOW MEL­BOURNE school­girl Jade Hameis­ter walked into the his­tory books in 2016 when she be­came the youngest per­son to trek one of the more dif­fi­cult routes to the North Pole at the age of 14. She faced dan­ger­ous con­di­tions, freez­ing tem­per­a­tures and the threat of polar bears. In May she will ski 540km from coast to coast across Green­land – the world’s sec­ond big­gest ice cap. Jade is liv­ing proof that age is no bar­rier to achiev­ing your dreams, no mat­ter how big those dreams may be.
