What if you could get a do-over and try out the Dream Job that got away? Not a side hustle, not a lateral move – just straight up starting from scratch to catch a glimpse of what might have been.

That’s what CEO and happily-married mom Alisha Fernandez Miranda did when she took a leave from her company and crossed the ocean to take a year of unpaid internships in the dream jobs of her childhood. Oh, and she kicked it all off in February 2020. The resulting memoir, “My What If Year,” is a wild ride of starry-eyed immersion in Broadway, high art, and the other dreams of her youth… and the kind of self-reflection that can only come from throwing your life into upheaval, and then doubling down during a global pandemic.
