I used upwork a couple of years back and am just returning now. In the interim I have udnergone a gender transition and would like to update my new legal name, email, and gender marker accordingly. I'm wondering what the best way to go about this is?

Hi. I'm a 3D Artist from Brazil and I want to take my first job here. However, I've seen that video verification is mandatory. I'm transgender and I haven't yet started my transition and it would be hard for me to verify via video because of my gender dysphoria. Is there some other way I can verify my identity? I can provide my government-issued ID's no problem. Regards,Amanda
So, long story short, I'm transgender, and my ID has a different name than the one I have registered here. I am on the way of changing my legal name right now, but in order to get paid I know I have to upload my ID and link my PayPal account, and both have my ID name.
Is there any issue with this? I read about it somewhere the first day I logged in, but I can't seem to find that info again. Any help would be much appreciated, I already got paid for one job and I have to upload my info soon.
I sent the required ID but I don't have bills at my name which could make verification harder. I'm sure if I could only explain to them or have a conversation where I can send more specific data instead of just sending documents that would be good, otherwise I'm not sure what to do not to have my account disabled after those 24 hours. I have the last conversation through Upwork before getting a job tomorrow and I may not have time to fix this. I haven't worked in a while and can't risk losing this opportunity. If anyone has any idea how I could go about this I would really appreciate it.
