Is that mean I will be inside the video?

Hi Valeria, I appreciate that so much, My story is actually pretty unique because  I was hospitalized in 2013 at Yale for close to two months with a very rare lung disease, and almost died. During a procedure to take a lung biopsy, they cut my lung and I had tremendous internal bleeding, and was immediately on life support and on 100% hi flow oxygen for 22 days, then spent over two years recovering. I had to learn to walk again and use my arms and hands after being in bed for 5 weeks. During that time,  I lost my home, and had to sell 90% of my possessions, over years of hard work,  just to get back on my feet. I was unable to work and meet clients and do my photography, because I was relapsing from the lung disease,  so my friend Melissa had success on Upwork and told me about it. I was able to start working on Upwork in March and now I now have a 99% Success Rate and tons of new clients. Upwork basically saved me and restored my self-confidence and worth, and made it possible for me to fully recover and pay for medication and all that I need. It’s been a life-altering experience and I’d love to share my story.

Hi Vinod and Naveed,


Thanks for reaching out and for providing us with permission to use your image. You can find details on the ad campaign currently running in Times Square here. We’ll email freelancers that were featured a link to find themselves in a video by October 5, 2018. We received an overwhelming amount of responses and were not able to include a majority of the freelancers that granted permission due to limited space. But we'll do our best to feature you in future campaigns.
