How do I title my Music Journey on my Common App?

Hi there! I'm an international student applying for a computer engineering major and one of my extracurricular includes music. I've been singing for almost over a decade and have recently started releasing music on streaming platforms.

My debut single has 10.8K streams (in less than a month) and I'm not sure how I'm supposed to describe that on my Common App? It might not be a big deal since 10K streams aren't that many considering the global standards but I still think it's noteworthy to mention.

What should I title it as?

Thank you in advance, Anu (she/her)

I agree that it's pretty impressive, especially in high school, and you can add something like that, it can be quite beneficial. You should also keep in mind that some people also use services like Tubidy to download music and listen to songs for free, and it means that the number of your streams can be even more. Of course, it's impossible to track, just consider that your number of streams can be even more.

10.8k streams is an impressive accomplishment in high school! You can write "Singer-songwriter" for the title of your music EC. Then, you can explain the performance of your single and any other accomplishments throughout your music career. Hope this helps!
