Please chance me! I am applying to Brown ED for the class of 2023.

Weighted GPA: 4.38 (will be valedictorian)
Ethnicity: Asian-American
Gender: Female
Intended major: Linguistics
Location: Alaska (born and raised)
Income: 100k-120k??
AP Classes (below)
Sophomore- AP World History (4), AP Spanish (5)
Junior- AP Calc AB (4), AP Lang (5), AP Chem (3 lol)
Senior (currently taking)- AP Macroecon, AP Gov, AP Japanese, AP Lit, AP Stats, AP Psych
ACT: 33 (essay 10/12)
Extracurriculars/awards:
-went to South Korea over the summer and taught English to North Korean refugees
-I volunteer for the North Korean refugee organization (mentioned above) from home by translating their media into Spanish.
-helped found Womens' Club at my school (treasurer)
-revived the Recycling Club and started a composting system at my school (president)
-AFS Spain summer exchange-I was the only one to be placed in the advanced Spanish class (I was a sophomore)

I think my common app essay is unique- I wrote about teaching my grandma the alphabet when I was a child because my friends made fun of her, her Alzheimer's, and how the experiences impacted my views on my identity and the world.

I am hoping for some juicy letters of rec.

Would being from Alaska or going into an unpopular major (that I am genuinely passionate in) help me at all?
