Can WordPress Create Forum Website Similar to Reddit

Im looking to create a website similar to reddit or discord, which I soon realized is very extensive. I do not have much CS or Web Development background, but have been learning through resources online. Can I instead use WordPress to create this website? It would include people creating account, creating/joining forums and chatting with each other, and storing this data until the original creator decides to delete the forum or their comments.

Any input will really help. I cant set much time to peruse this especially since its outside my field of study so it will take a long time to bring this website to life. But, I also really need to create this website ASAP.
