I know I'm a little early, but I'm currently in 8th grade and I'm planning on applying for tenth grade next year. I don't really have much extracurricular opportunities where I live, so I have some unique ones.
Here are the ones I'm currently doing/am planning on doing:
-I volunteer at a local library for around 4 hours a week.
-I also volunteer at a local no-kill animal shelter for about the same amount of time.
-I have a book blog, where I post reviews on books I have read and interviews with different authors.
-I've started a book blog touring company, where I organize blog tours for authors.
-I'm currently taking sign language.
-I babysit a child of a family friend.
-I've had a couple articles published with a teen literacy magazine.
-When I turn 14 this summer, I'm planning on applying for a job at a local grocery store. If that doesn't work out, my father's boss (who my family is friends with) has agreed to hire me.
Are those extracurriculars okay, or should I attempt to find others?
