As part of Women's History Month in March and International Women's Day on the 8th, we are conducting a series of interviews with interesting and inspirational women in travel. From adventurers and conservationists to guides and rangers, there are some amazing women out there, and here's what a few of them have to say.
The first person we got in touch with was a young explorer named Jade Hameister. At the age of 12 she trekked to Everest Base Camp, at 14 she become the youngest person in history to ski to the North Pole from anywhere outside The Last Degree. She is also the youngest person to complete the Polar Hat Trick (traversing the North Pole, South Pole and Greenland ice sheet), and, as if that wasn't enough, she also set a new route to the South Pole unsupported and unassisted. Did we mention she is only 16? We spoke to Jade to find out more about her achievements and what inspires her.
