How do I find a suitable extracurricular activity?

Hi everyone, I'm a junior and I've been struggling to find an extracurricular activity that I'm truly passionate about. I want to get involved in something that I enjoy and that will also look good on my college applications. Can anyone offer advice on how to find the right activity for me? Thanks in advance!

Hi there! Finding an extracurricular activity that matches your interests can definitely be a challenge, but don't worry, there are a lot of options out there! Start by reflecting on your hobbies and interests. Are there any clubs or organizations at your school that align with those? If not, consider starting one yourself! It's a great way to demonstrate leadership and initiative on your college applications. You can also look for opportunities in your community, such as volunteering at a local non-profit or joining a sports team. Don't forget to think outside the box too! Maybe there's a cause you're passionate about, and you could start a fundraising campaign or awareness event. The key is to be genuine in your pursuits, as colleges value authenticity and dedication. Good luck, and I'm sure you'll find something you love and that will help you stand out on your applications!
