Jade Hameister, the 16-year-old Australian is one of the coolest kids out there. She became the youngest person ever to complete the Polar Hat Trick, which means crossing the South Pole, the North Pole and Greenland ice sheet. And while doing it, she schooled the people who trolled her a lesson they will never forget.
She gave a TEDx talk a few years ago, when she explained her plans for the journey called the Polar Hat Trick, and she hoped to encourage other young women to follow their dreams. However, trolls bombed her with their sexist remarks, even though she had already skied on the North Pole, with the popular: “make me a sandwich”. And she did just that when she achieved her biggest life goal.
She skied unassisted across the Greenland icecap in 2017, which meant that she had completed the second part of her hat trick, and for the third part, the South Pole, she had to pull a 220-pound sledge across Antarctica for 373 miles!
She then took a photo with the Ceremonial South Pole while holding a sandwich, saying: “I made you a ham & cheese sandwich, now ski <…> to the South Pole and you can eat it.”
She wrote that the past couple of years have been filled with crazy new experiences for her, and they have transformed her and her soul. She has pushed herself beyond her boundaries and challenged what other people thought that was not possible, for young women in particular.

She received some nasty comments from men after her TEDx talk 2 years ago, telling her to “go and make them a sandwich”
She had a perfect revenge:
