What are the best type of extracurriculars to do ?

Your extracurriculars should develop a huge, and I mean HUGE spike in one area of interest. It seems like you're interested in Musical Theatre and have pursued some extracurriculars in the area. It's crazy cool that you've written your own Musical for a project. I would suggest to get your Musical published and have a group perform it to a crowd. That would develop your spike further.

Thank you for the advice Kaylen !!! About the musical, me alongside my classmates we performed the show to our parents, friends and part of the school faculty, but I will look into the publishing part !! Another thing, during quarantine I've been writing a webseries with a few friends and we plan to post the episodes, do you think it's worth mentioning ??

Heck yeah, I would. Doing any personal project during quarantine boosts your application and makes you seem committed to learning. Its impact is compounded further if it also develops your spike. I would definitely include it, especially if it gets views. Even if you can't put in in your activities list, it would make an amazing addition to an essay.

You can conduct a series of musical theater workshops at your local library for kids in your community. You can try to look for casting calls and auditions to see if that can expand your role. Due to COVID-19, you can start a website or Youtube Channel with musical theater tips, tricks and lesson. Good Luck!
