Chances of Getting into WFU?

Hello, I am currently a female sophomore student, out of state.

I know that I'm still a sophomore, but I want to know what things I can do to increase my changes of getting into Wake Forest.
My unweighted GPA is 3.9
Class Rank: 50 out of 965
I'm Half Thai/Half Laos
I'm a first generation college student

I plan on taking 10 Ap's by the time I graduate. Currently (Ap World HIstory, Ap Psychology). Junior Year: (AP Physics, AP English Language, AP U.S History) Senior Year: AP Calculus BC, AP Biology, AP European History, AP Econ & Gov, AP English Literature.

I plan on taking all four years of German.

I am currently in:
Beta Club
German Club (officer & running for president)
German National Honor Society (running for president)
Current tutor for freshman in algebra, biology, and language arts.

Plan on:
Joining Student council for next two years
Joining environmental club
Joining FCCLA

I currently have 110+ hours of community service and plan on getting 400 by 1st semester senior year.

I know it's hard to tell whether I will get in or not, and this is only if I follow everything I plan on doing for the next two years. Is there anything I can do to improve my chances? I want to do things in high school I enjoy, and make myself stand out.
Thank you to anyone who answers this, I know this seems a little messy I just want to know what I can do to help myself getting into this university, because it is my first pick.

** Also, not sure if this matters, but my county was chosen to win the Broad prize twice. We are the number 3 county in education in the nation.
