Does class rank play a huge factor? Can u evaluate my competitiveness? What should I work on?

I'm currently a sophomore attending a small public high school, I'm based in NYC which is a pretty competitive region.

race: asian female

first generation/low income

Here are my stats:

cumulative avg: 93/100 (4.0). school dosen't do weighted/unweighted

class rank: 29/116


founder/president of one program/startup that has members from around the global. about 80 active members

founder/president of my school's key club (volunteering elective). 70+ active members

i currently have 50+ community service hours on the same thing

I'm wondering if I have a shot at top colleges (acceptance rates < 30%), and my dream school currently is Barnard.
