16 Year Old Skier Schools Sexist Trolls With Just One Photo
At just 16 years old, Jade Hameister has accomplished more than most people do in a lifetime. She is the youngest person to complete the Polar Hat Trick, which consists of crossing the North Pole, South Pole, and Greenland ice sheet.
According to Bored Panda, 2 years ago, Jade completed a TEDx Talk where she received a lot of hateful responses from men. We know: shocking. But really, guys? This little girl is going to be your target? One of the more common responses to Jade's talk from men was the classic, super creative and not at all worn-out comeback “go make me a sandwich.”
But the skier was not phased by the trolls. In fact, she decided she would, in fact, make them a sandwich.
"I made you a sandwhich (ham & cheese), now ski 37 days and 600km to the South Pole and you can eat it."
Well, she absolutely killed it. . Hats off to you, Jade. We applaud you.
“Experiences that have transformed me and my soul. New pins on my map, new smells, new tastes, new friends, new cultures and a new mindset. I’ve pushed myself past what I once thought were my boundaries and challenged what other people once thought was possible for young women in particular.”
