Lin (@Lin)
writer

Lin is a mixed-race non-binary aromantic asexual. They have worked previously as a crisis line advocate for their college, and plan to become certified and continue volunteering as an advocate in the future. They are fairly new to having an online presence but have been involved in the asexual community for roughly 3 years. As an online voice, they hope to help build community and create resources that will take a little weight off the shoulders of someone else who is also working through their recovery process. Most of their free brain power is spent thinking about food, but they occasionally have other interests as well. These include writing, playing with power tools, and making mediocre artwork. They aspire to be a dancer, a more compassionate friend, and a more articulate activist.
