So....I’m in 6th grade, but I’d like to start thinking about this high school thing earlier (don’t judge me). I know I have more time to improve, but I’d really like any advice you could give, or any semblance of direction.
I go to a pretty small school, and we don’t get a lot of opportunities to do things, so please keep that in mind. I’ve always wanted to be part of a debate team, but my school doesn’t even support that. I’ve been Googling all over the place to find myself different chances, such as online courses or competitions.
My extracurriculars: I’ve been playing piano for nine years, and have won multiple national and international competitions, and compose some music as well just for fun. I also have been playing the oboe for two years, and am joining a regional orchestra soon. My main thing is writing, and I am working on my second book. My first book is currently in the finals of a publishing competition, and I’m hoping it will go through. I’m also in the Nationals of the National History Bee.
As for my grades; I get straight A’s, but...I’m Asian. And judging by some of the things I’ve seen written on CC, grades don’t make that much of a difference unless they’re bad.
My SSAT is in the 99th percentile for reading, writing, and verbal. Quantitive is 93rd percentile.
Thank you for your attention, I would appreciate any guidance.
If there are any good competitions or academic opportunities you could suggest, that would be great as well.
