I HIGHLY recommend travel to everyone I meet. "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime."- Mark Twain
Take advantage of your extra curricular activities and advancing in your basic courses so that in HS you have even more time for more extra curricular activities and to excel in Math and Foreign Language courses. While in HS I was able to graduate with College Course credits which made it quicker and less expensive for me to graduate. Knowing a foreign language and being certified in such is an advantage especially in the corporate world, it means a financial gain for you.
