-Mayor's Youth Corps (1 of 40 high schoolers in county selected to be in year long program which educates us on city government and a focus on community service). Also participated in a smaller group of about 7 dedicated to managing and producing content for the club's Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube channel.
-National Honor Society Member

Basically we get speakers to talk about manners, the future, respect, and other important topics! This club started the end of my junior year when I became a board member)
-Big Brother (Possible Board Member-waiting for results- this is only for seniors. Seniors who join get paired up with 1 or 2 freshman and teach them about high school and how to be best prepared for the years ahead).

Letter of Recs: 9.5/10. One teacher absolutely loves me and I've been in his class 3/4 years. Other teacher was a class I struggled in but worked hard in and the teacher likes me a lot as well.
Essay: ??/10. I really enjoy my essay as it highlights my leadership skills in the face of adversity/learning how to be in a wheelchair while showing my optimistic/happy side.
I think that's it! Any advice is super helpful and thank you for reading through this!
