If you worked with/studied under yours truly before and would like to request for a professional recommendation, feel free to reach out to me via email (or LinkedIn, if you want a more immediate one). Recommendation letters (not including those written on LinkedIn) for ex-students are on a case-by-case basis, and also dependent on whether or not I land in a professional job at time of request; this means that I may not be able to take on your recommendation request during certain periods if I'm currently not working.. no harm trying though!
