No rising talent badge yet, ive earned more than $1000 but still no badge

I'm a member of the community now and have successfully earned over $1000 but I still have not been given the rising talent badge, I feel now that this might be a reason that I'm unable to attract more work here as people see my earning and see no badge which sounds unrealistic to them. 

I need help on this matter on this to grow my freelancing career.

I just looked at your profile and it does seem to me like you ought to have a rising talent badge, but Upwork never explains exactly why some freelancers have one and others don't. Do you meet all of these requirements?

To qualify for a Rising Talent badge, you must:

  • Pass the Upwork Readiness Test
  • Complete projects on time and as promised to clients
  • Maintain a 100% complete profile with accurate skills and genuine work
  • Keep your availability status up-to-date
  • Regularly submit proposals to projects that match your skill set
  • Adhere to the Upwork Terms of Service
  • Have been active in the past 90 days or joined in the past 30 days

Not long ago, at some point I wondered about the same and I reviewed all the points just shared by Christine a few times. Then suddenly, one day, I got the badge. Don't lose hope and keep going Smiley Wink
