Hi Avery, I've been trying to get approved on Upwork for a long days. I've passed Shopify exam & English Test. I did everything but still my profile isn't getting approved. I'm really frustrated. Can you please tell me what's wrong with my profile?

My profile has been in review for over 24 hrs. Would you be able to tell me when I will be able to receive the approval?

I am a freelancer specialized in data analysis/mining, mobile development, and design. The skills I have that distinguishes me from others are professional and user-friendly UX/UI design based on qualitative/quantitative research and human computer interaction. Thus, my capability is different from simple graphic design and also very practical.

I hope I will be able to share my expertise on UX/data analysis for both the client and myself's successful business through upwork.

Please review my profile carefully and proceed with the approval process.

Sincerely Yours,
Minkyoung Kim

I am confused, Jomark.  It looks like you're a new freelancer trying to get your profile approved but then your profile belongs to that of a client.  So which one are you?
