If I made a youtube channel, should I put it in the activities ? I want to talk about it in my essays. So should I just not put it in my activities and just talk about it in my essay? Or should I just put it in the activities section and continue to talk bout it?

Cuz ive read about not putting your resume in your essays since its too repetitive?

    I'm applying this year and I am putting my food blog instagram page on my activities and likely talking a bit about it in my essay too. Personally I would put it in both places. You want to show that it has been an important aspect and activity in your life, but also the activities section does not give much room to expand on it and make it special and show a story or a meaningful lesson you maybe learned through it. I think those guidelines about not repeating is more geared towards grades and academic activities like beta club, NHS, and all this other semi boring service clubs. Like yes they wanna see you have done those but it's not very unique. A YouTube channel is super unique to you and if you can spin it in a way that makes you stand out then totally talk about it.
