PROJECT 375: What is the most daring thing you’ve ever done?
Jasmin: I say the most daring thing I’ve ever done was to share my story of depression and attempted suicide with other people. I made a decision that I never wanted anyone to suffer as much as I did. So in the fear of being humiliated I still decided to make a YouTube video and share it with anyone who would listen. It was the hardest thing I ever had to do… but it became one of the most fulfilling things In my life. A YouTube video lead to me advocating. Advocating lead to me writing a book.
