EC Help

I'm a junior in high school with a 3.45 GPA in regular classes except for 2 dual-credit courses. Currently, I am actively involved in the following activities:

- MUN (11)

- Church Volunteer (9-11)

- Grief Counseling Volunteer (11)

- Intern via Forage (11)

- Employee of a family business (9-11)

- School Journal (9)

- Elected Speaker of the House for two consecutive terms in my history class (11)

I love law and business and my top universities are George Washington, Virginia Tech, and U. Lusofona (PT).In addition to my current ECs, I'm considering founding a chapter of the FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) and/or starting a podcast as a passion project. Does anyone have any advice or alternative suggestions?

I just want to say that you are doing great right now. I can comprehend that what you are really asking is: Am I good enough? Is everything I do going to be enough?

and the answer is yes, it is. You ´ re doing great.

I would ask that you do some self-evaluation. Do you have enough time to foster a chapter of the FBLA? if so, then I would suggest doing it. The same thing goes for the podcast idea.

However, I would ask that you would only pick one, as both are most likely more time consuming than you ill realize until you have gotten into them both.

I would also add that if you want to start these things, do you have enough material or content to base them on?

Do you have enough people interested or committed to joining or signing up, do you have the ideas and plans required, or do you have the spaces and materials needed to start the project? all of these are important questions to ask.

Also, how would these things affect the amount of time you have for yourself?

Please take care of yourself and make sure that you are still providing yourself with enough time to keep yourself together.

Don ´ t worry, you are already doing so well.
