How important are extracurriculars for admissions in CS in Pakistan, and for Master's abroad, and how do I find extracurriculars with limited opportunities and freedom ?

I don't know where to even start to find internships, extracurriculars etc and my college does not offer anything.

What are some good extracurriculars that can improve my chances of getting into a medical school as a high school student?
As the topic states, I have been trying to find a good bunch of extracurriculars that relate to the medical field. I currently do some volunteering as well as basketball on a local team (I heard group sports are always a bonus) and I was also planning on starting a NPO (Non-profit organization) revolving around mental health with some peers. As of now, nothing fits with the field I am aiming for. Are there any good extracurriculars that revolve around medical? I know extracurriculars aren't all that matters, but I still think it is a good idea to have organized extracurriculars that match the field you are planning to go into. Thank you!!

How do I find more hobbies to expand my scholarship applicability?
I'm only in 9th grade, so I know I have time, but I'm starting to think about college scholarships. I'm on a swim team but I'm not particularly fast compared to kids my age and even younger. I'm a straight A student but I know scholarships will require a little more than just academic success. How can I expand? Swim takes up a lot of time and I love it, so I'm not willing to sacrifice that, but I know I need to expand a little. I'm interested in musical theatre and singing, but struggling to find theatre opportunities for teens who are newer to the stage. How can I find something that'll work for me and make me a well rounded kid who's more applicable for scholarships?
