How do I pronounce your name?

Danni - sounds like 'Annie' 

Peña - true Spanish pronunciation would sound approximately like 'pain-yuh,' though my family has pronounced it 'pen-yuh' as long as I can remember. Either works for me!

please for the love of Pete&Pete try not to say 'pee-nuh.'

I began identifying as non-binary and using gender-neutral or gender-inclusive pronouns to describe myself publicly in 2016 (though I have self-identified myself as neither entirely girl nor boy since childhood).

Honorific : Mx. (pronounced "mix")

Pronouns : they/them/their preferred, she/her/hers considered acceptable (I was socialized as, and appear to the majority of the population as, a girl/woman, so I do feel that she/her is representative of my experience).

"I asked them last week about their pronoun preference and they were very pleased!"


How do I type the tilde (ñ) in your name on my phone or computer?

on the letter N, a tilde may be referred to as and pronounced aloud as an "enyay"

I'm more familiar with Apple / Macintosh operating systems, so that's what I'll elaborate here:

 

iPhone - please see play the video

Mac computer - 

  1. hold the 'option' key and press the 'N' key
  2. release
  3. press the 'N' key once again (for capitalization press Shift + N)
