Riley H

Non-binary trans, femme homo who returned to school after many million years to devour the tech world with their zany calls for diversity, ready to smash the (imaginary) meritocracy. Anime geek and eternal Japanese language student who works on coding games, pixel art and fantasy fiction novel writing in their free time.
