Recently, I read the book "How to Make Colleges Want You" by Mike Moyer. (Side Note: the book was really useful into learning on how to get an edge for college admissions so i recommend it to everyone +) )
For one of the chapters, the author talks about one major aspect into getting an edge: Non-Teenage Activities or NTA's for short. Basically, an NTA is anything that the average teenager would not do but would be more likely to be done by an adult. Examples they had in the book are becoming a TV/radio personality, volunteering at a medical clinic in Africa, and starting a business. I actually tried starting a business, but it turned into an epic fail.
Although the book gave advice on getting your own NTA, i'm still stuck at a dead end. So, i'm wondering if anyone else has ideas of NTAs because i think its a great idea that i dont want to give up on just yet.
