Can a non-Jew celebrate/Observe Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah ?

In the beginning of quarantine I started thinking about converted (To Judaism), but because of COVID-19 I was unable to talk to a rabbi. I was wondering if, since I haven’t converted to Judaism yet and technically haven’t even begun the process, if it was okay to celebrate/observe Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah since it’s coming up on the 18th I think.

I value the idea of repentance/Teshuva and this would be the first time I celebrated/observed any Jewish Holiday. I’d be celebrating alone because of COVID and I don’t really have a Jewish community I know at the moment that I’d be able to celebrate with. I think I’d just do something simple like going to a local lake and toss stones or breadcrumbs into the water and say the tashlikh/tashlich (Not sure how it’s spelled). I’ll probably buy some round challah or regular Challah if I can’t find the round ones and have apples and honey. Do some meditation and self reflection.

But anyways I was just wondering if it’d still be okay and acceptable to celebrate/observe the holidays. If so, do you have any advice for how to make it feel a little less lonely with quarantine and all? Anyways thank you for reading this I know it was super long sorry 😅.
