"Internal Profile" handle vs "Community Profile" handle

Hi there, bit of a vanity question here: Is it possible to “convert” an internal profile handle to a Community handle?

I thought I’d claimed @kwon as my Community Profile handle (I’d like to be able to post, share, follow etc from figma.com/@kwon)

But when I’m logged in and try to post, share, follow, I’m prompted to claim a Community handle - e.g., if I navigate to Settings > Community, there’s a call to action to “Claim your handle”.

If I try to enter kwon there, I’m told it’s already taken. So it looks like @kwon is my internal profile handle (if such a thing exists). How can I change my internal profile handle to my Community handle?

I’ve tried looking through these documents but it’s still not totally clear to if or how I can do this:

Any thoughts?

Is this your profile? figma.com/@kwon
This is the Community profile. You may have signed in to a different account.

That was it! Didn’t realize I had already claimed it with my work email months ago. Thank you!
