You should try to avoid getting hung up on job titles, they are usually very generic and do not contain enough information as to what the role may or may not involve.
Am I a UX designer?
This is the wrong question. What you should be asking is: "Do I have experience with UX design?"

A design pattern is defined as "a general, reusable solution to a commonly occurring problem within a given context".
Dark design patterns are considered "dark UX", but since patterns have an element of reusability, it's possible to create a dark user experience without a dark pattern.
"Asshole design" is an informal, pejorative ...
Consider 1:1 vs Group Messaging

If it was for a documentation, I'd avoid showing the last bit of the endpoint. You'd have two repeating content sitting close to each other.
But on the other hand, if you don't have any title for your product it'd work as a header ...
If you cannot pay an external agency or service to do your recruiting, you will need to do the work yourself. Put out screeners on LinkedIn and Twitter. Find the communities that your target audience would most likely be.
I've seen a lot of portfolios that propose solutions for UX problems in popular apps, streaming services, etc. I don't think this is a good idea for a portfolio because:
You're not familiar with the app's prioritized users and their tasks. What seems like a UX issue to you (maybe not the right user) might be fine for the app's intended users.

This is great. I would also add another one that is a bit polemic but felt in some companies by female UX Designers so, important to mention.
Gender and Racial Bias
What suggestions of how to be seen as a leader to introduce UX to a team?
