I’ve been thinking: a lot of colleges ask for a project or service you use as an initiative in high school to show entrepreneurship, and I was thinking I could use some of my CAS work for that, like, if I develop a small company or something that helps my community, I could show it as my enterprise and that could help me in the leadership matter. Is it fair to do that or does the IB stuff should be put aside?

Of course, you’re on the right track! I do the same, several activities I’ve done for CAS such as fundraising, charity walking, free computer assistance to my community, competitions, etc. I can show to colleges that I’ve done them. This is why after IB you’ve got a great list of achievements, activities, hobbies all organized in a list to show to colleges; with hindsight, this is what has made me appreciate CAS more. Just don’t forget that you can not get paid for a CAS activity or it is invalid.
