I'm sorry but just curious, 7 programming languages? please don't mind me asking. I myself am a computer enthusiast and think that's a pretty big deal

In India, we have a single school that teaches us from kindergarten to high school and I was fortunate that my school has been hyperActive in terms of computers especially coding and I remember them teaching me this graphic coding language which took instruction and drew accordingly(It was something like that, it been ~10 years) in grade 3 and I got really interested in computers in general and with youtube, I started to learn about computers with LTT for hardware stuff and code.org

for software in grade 6. So, I had an early start I guess and that's how I started learning Python and then got into other languages like Java(for APCSA), PHP, HTML, Kotlin, SQL(query language but you can give me a slack on that) and I am currently doing CSS

You know logic behind the code is majorly similar, you just have to get use to syntax and special features of a particular language

Your extracurriculars are extremely impressive. Evidently, you show an aptitude for technology. I think any T10 college would be lucky to have you!
