Finding Beginner Friendly GitHub Projects

So I’m a little bit into my universities CS program and as fun as it is to do simple payroll calculators and simple grade books are I really want to start working on something more “real world”. I feel like I have a semi-decent grounding in C++ now and I know a bit of python but I’m still solidly a beginner. I would love to start building somewhat of a portfolio but I’m really not sure where to start. Any advice is apreciated.
