Buy May This Be the Best Year of Your Life
Based on a private journal, memories and a blog that chronicled her adventure to India, Sandra Bornstein (MEdu’05) wrote May This Be the Best Year of Your Life to serve as a resource and guide to help others overcome the challenges of living outside of their comfort zone. When her husband accepted a job that required extensive international travel, Sandra was living her version of the American dream in Colorado, never imagining she would be faced with several dilemmas that left her feeling uncertain. After a series of events, she found herself in a life-altering experience that placed her alone in a 300 square foot dorm room while teaching at a renowned international boarding school in Bangalore. This compelling, honest and edifying memoir shares everything she learned about perseverance, travel, education, faith and family. Had Sandra never resided in India, she would have missed out on an experience that ultimately enhanced her resiliency, confidence and passion for life.
