In case you missed, GitHub recently launched a feature that allows users to add a README on their GitHub profiles that shows up on top of their pinned repositories.

To enable the feature, you'll have to create a new repository with same name as your username and initialize it with a README.md. Then all you need to do is just edit that README according your preference - you can add anything you'd like to show off; projects, links, interests etc. ✨

I tried it out, and here's how it looks like...
