Jasmin Singer (Santa Cruz, CA; jasminsinger.com), is the author of the memoir Always Too Much and Never Enough (Penguin Random House Berkeley 2016). Her memoir talks about finding herself on the ropes of her weight-loss journey. Her talk draws ideas from her book: how do others shape our identity? How do our assumptions about others replicate in ourselves? And how do we come to the realization that we are able to live a meaningful life?
