Rebecca Jarrett is truly ending her IHA career with many accomplishments. Rebecca is the epitome of what it means to be an IHA girl. She is well-rounded, dedicated to helping others, and committed to her schoolwork and sports teams.
Rebecca takes many honors classes at IHA and remains on the honor roll every marking period. As a committed soccer player and hardworking student, she knows how to manage her time well and accustomed herself to juggling her priorities. She is an active member of the Business Club, headed by Mrs. Capizzi, and participates in the field trips and discussions on marketing, leadership, and finance. She is also involved in the Intro to Business Class, in which she openly expresses her ideas in creating new developments. Becca even came up with an idea of her own business called “Dorm Sweet Dorm.” She wants to create an innovative twist on dorm decoration and make this process easier, cheaper, and more exciting for her consumers!
In addition to her outstanding dedication to her academics, Becca’s true passion is soccer. She grew up playing the sport, and cannot imagine her life without it. She played for IHA Soccer her freshman and sophomore year and won numerous awards. In 2014, she played for the National Championship Team and led her team to victory. Her other soccer feats include playing for her club team, NYCFC (New York City Football Club), and most importantly playing for the u18 US National Team. Becca has played soccer in multiple countries and has competed against Iran, Mexico, and the Netherlands.
Along with her soccer career and busy academic schedule, Becca still manages to find time to babysit for a family every day after school for a few hours, and then work at a gym at night. What might be the secret to managing her crazy schedule one might ask? Ms. Oblen, one of Becca’s teachers at IHA, said, “She really does do it all, and she manages to balance her commitments with poise and humor, making the difficult art of living well seem so easy. In short, I want to be Rebecca Jarrett when I grow up!”
Rebecca verbally committed to the University of Virginia during her freshman year, an impressive achievement and indication of her skill. She plans to major in business, marketing and advertising. We wish you the best of luck in everything you choose to do, Rebecca. Go Cavaliers!
