What can I put on my ecs?
Answered

So, I'm from Brazil and our school system is fairly different. My school does not offer that much extracurriculars, unless its sports witch I don't do hahah, so as my school doesn't help me that much in this sense, I need to ask: what can qualify as an extracurricular? Right now I can't think of anything that I did this past few years (this might sound lazy af but the system here doesn't encorage these things). Also I'm in my senior year (school here is febuary-december mostly), what can I start doing to improve my chances?

Thank you for any responses and sorry for possible grammar mistakes.

There are so many things you can do! I recommend finding something you are already passionate about and further it as far as you can. Also if you know what you want to major you can find an extracurricular that correlates with your major and desired career. Here is a list of more extracurricular activities that I hope helps!

Get involved with local businesses

Play a sport

Baking

Get an internship/ job

Online clubs

Student activism

Painting

Designing

Research

Starting a business

Writing a book or article
