Your managerial role at the warehouse and leadership on your basketball team will show great leadership skills. Your mathematics honors and book club demonstrate strong academic ability. Your NCC work also adds to your profile. You've checked a lot of boxes. My recommendation for improving extracurriculars would be volunteer work, but you have a very strong profile. Best of luck!
