The meeting was geared toward our younger IHA sisters to provide an opportunity to learn from and partner with junior and senior members of the club.
Club Être members provided information, insights, and experiences on anything and everything the underclassmen wanted to know about Immaculate Heart and how to take advantage of what the school has to offer—from clubs, classes, and athletics to the college process, theater, honor societies, social events, and so much more. Attendees participated in a scavenger hunt to meet upperclassmen involved in certain activities, and then finished up the afternoon with a game of IHA Trivia.
IHA’s Club Être, moderated by Mrs. Christine Cabrera Capizzi’89, mathematics and business teacher, is a forum where IHA’s young women are inspired by other successful women. Club Être was founded at IHA in 2018 after students heard from Être founder, Illana Raia, at a Business Club networking luncheon. Illana is also the aunt of three IHA sisters, Gabriella Raia’19, Olivia Raia’22, and Samantha Raia’24. To date, Club Être has offered mentorship opportunities with influential women in various industries and continues its ultimate goal of empowering young women by encouraging bravery, philanthropy, financial literacy, and young entrepreneurship.
