Am I falling behind - 10th grade
Hello, I am a sophomore in high school currently(I go to high school in Fulton County Georgia). I feel like I am falling behind on building a high school resume, and was wondering around what stats I should have in sophomore year of high school. I have been coding for about 3 years now and I have nothing to show for it(no competitions or anything, but I just figured out about USACO and have started studying for the competition this month), and don't have any other achievements or awards I have won. I do run on my high school's cross country team, but I am not amazing and I'm on the JV team. My weighted numeric average is a 97 and unweighted it is a 92(at my high school they do not do a 4.0 GPA scale but rather a numeric average) and my unweighted is a 92. I have no club leaderships at this point and was considering making my own club so I could get a leadership position. I am really worried that I am falling behind on building a resume for college looking at my 0 achievements or leaderships, and my GPA not being amazing either. I was just wondering what level are most other 10th graders at right now, and if anyone knows any good ECs I can do(I'm interested in things to do with computers, nature, and business) and ways to improve my resume?
