    Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone could help me out.
    I'm in the process of applying to the waterloo optometry program! I have quite a few academic awards however they also ask for non academic awards and special skills. I have no idea what to put for this stuff, wondering if anyone can give me some examples!

    Don't know how much the interview and app process changed since I applied but my non-academic stuff was musical awards even though some were totally not recent (i was in grade 4 lol) but it went up to highschool so IDK i thought maybe it would showed that I continued on with it and not just some random thing that came out of nowhere. And for highschool I got some random award just by being in clubs so yeah I added that stuff. Community awards would look good.
