A bit of background - I’ve clashed with my school on some issues and they’ve either kicked me out of or totally stopped some extracurriculars ... so for context those with O are mostly done out of school.
Literary magazines (O) - genre editor for prestigious high school litmag, junior editor for academic litmag, and MAY become marketing associate at a third
Journalism (O) - on student board for high school program at Pulitzer Prize winning paper, published in many more (NY Times, LA Times, Times of Israel, Jerusalem Post, Huffington Post, etc.) also managing editor at school newspaper but it’s not so established
Political advocate (O) - this is a sore topic since my school kicked me out of their official political advocacy club because of something I can’t exactly get into. It has to do with my school being private and me being on financial aid. But I’m a part of HSDA and may run for state chair this summer. Plus I’m also the student representative for my neighborhood council.
Debate team captain
Slam poetry (O) - youth board member for international poetry organization. Placed a state competition this year
Charity/Volunteering (O) - won a 1.5k grant this year to run art and writing workshops for underprivileged children... also volunteered 500+ hours in different programs
National English honors society
JV swim (just started, will be on varsity next year)
Varsity cross country - might be captain
Drama - in two plays so far, might not continue
Sorry if they’re good and I just sound like someone who wants praise, but certain ECs that I’m not in (like Model UN and the political club I got kicked out of) are hyped up a lot and I feel like the people in those have an upper leg to me.
