Your age suggests that you might be better off forgetting meeting existing TTRPG players as a primary strategy. There's enough people around with free time who are into nerdy hobbies, and I'm guessing at least some are already friends or at least friendly acquaintances among classmates around. It might well be easier to pull people from adjacent hobbies in than to find people already into D&D.. I'm 15 so I can't just open my doors to anyone but I'm just wondering for possible ways of meeting TTRPG players near me?
For instance, back in highschool I ran a after school game where the selection criteria was basically noticing that I had the same off period as two friends, and one day a week it was the last period and school thus ended early. One had never played RPGs before, but had some adjacent hobbies and was also down to just socialize.
