You're on the right track for sure with what you're currently doing. Are you more interested in business or coding? I can tell from your ECs that those two things seem to be your main interests (and if they're not let me know what is and we can come up with some more ECs) but you might want to focus on one more than the other depending on what you want to study in college.
