Best extracurriculars for Psychology major?

I am in a community college studying psychology and want to apply to many great schools by the time I transfer! I am interested in getting my masters to become a clinical psychologist or educational counselor after undergrad. However, during the time I am in community college now, I want to increase my chances of getting accepted into a great school for psychology. I read on the internet that creating a podcast or talk would be a good one, but I dislike the idea of sharing my voice because I am very shy... but I do love to volunteer and offer my help to anyone needed! Because of the pandemic, I stopped volunteering at a school, but I hope to find similar opportunities soon. Is there a specific area of activity I should focus on? Should I find specific places/areas to volunteer/work/intern at? There is also a Certified Nursing Assistant certification program offered at my school-- would this be helpful? I just hope I can boost my application in all ways possible : ) Thank you for your answers! #college #psychology #psychologist #clinicalpsychologist #counselor #psychiatrist #mentor #guidancecounselor #academiccounselor #volunteering #remotevolunteering #university #communitycollege #universityofcalifornia

What would you consider to be the hardest/worst day on the job as a licensed clinical psychologist? And would you say that even after a day like that that the profession would still be worth it?

Although this is my dream career, I'm starting to have some doubts if I'm capable of it or if I should seek another career in the psychological field. I want to be able to learn and prepare for the worst and see if its something I was born to overcome and surpass. #isitworthit #clinicalpsychologist #baddays #worstdays #hardestday

Has there ever been a time you doubted your major or career choice? And how did you go about handling that?
