    Hi, congrats on all the great things u have been doing in HS! Your stats same great and so do your extracurriculars. It is clear that you have been spending a lot of time in high school on self development and learning. On suggestion that I would have for you is to try to focus on the "premed theme" for most of your application on that instead of spreading too thin. That way, colleges will know that you have been working up to your passion towards to that field. Other than that you are good to go! If you can, also feel free to chance me:)
