From your Account-Settings, click on the Preferences tab.
You will notice the page is called Connection Preferences. These preferences will be shared on your public profile. Designating your gender, language preferences, peer support interests, and preferred modes of communication will help create great boundaries for future interactions with HeyPeers users.
The Peer Support Interest dropdown is particularly important because members can search for topics on the Find A Peer Supporter page, and if it is an interest you have selected, the list will show you as a potential connection.
