I know that UC's check 1% of applicants on whether or not their EC's are real. A lot of the activities I do are outside of school. For Ex:
- Worked as a Cantonese tutor ( Speaking ) / I have a Chinese Tutor. ( Different dialects of Chinese, but would they think I'm lying )
- Worked as a English tutor ( Mostly my cousins and sibling's friends )
- Worked at my dad's business
- Worked at my cousins shop
- Frisbee club
- Basketball club

I also have activities in school too.

How would I be able to prove these activities. I don't want to be chose and not know how to reply.

    For tutoring, have a parent of your student sign a letter stating you tutored them. Same for working in your Dad’s business or cousin’s shop. Have your Dad/Cousin sign a letter stating you worked there.
