as an international student what can i write as an extracurricular activity in my application?

, [edited]

So I'm am international student in Africa and extracurricular activities could be different from those in America so are there extracurricular activities that could be equivalent to the activities in America and maybe a few examples.

As this is a very broad question, I think you should provide some more info to help us out. But I'll answer it to the best of my ability. The better question is: what do you do when you aren't occupied with school? If you play sports, are in a band, or are an active member of a club, that counts as an extracurricular. The same goes for volunteering/working. Anything you do outside of a school that's more than a hobby (i.e. you've achieved recognition for it, competed in something, hold a leadership position, etc.) is fine. What's important is to show colleges that you care about a specific activity and that you're dedicated to it. If COVID-19 has ruined opportunities to participate in such activities, starting a blog or an online project is always a viable option - provided your WiFi is efficient.
