That's neat, I'm also pursuing Environmental Policy! There are many things that would benefit you in enhancing your application. If you wanted to go all out, you could pursue a passion project while you're in high school. Let's say you wanted to have an impact at your school - maybe you want to advocate for on-site composting, have your school install solar panels, or even go carbon-neutral. Doing this will show your commitment towards sustainability and will showcase your passion for the environment. Some less tougher things include working an environmental internship or participating in clubs. I wish I could've done more out of the things I included, but I built a strong application that got me into a great school nevertheless so don't stress too much about it. I wish you well.
