Not yet. But when you are 18 years old you may try.

Wait until your ID documents reflect your real age.

And spend the time honing your skills, building a portfolio, and learning about the business world.  When you freelance, you act as a business owner and if you don't understand what you are doing and how to plan ahead, you will never succeed.

Don't be so judgemental by just looking at someone age. As age can't be the only parameter on which we should judge someone skills.

It has nothing to do with skills. Upwork is a U.S.-based company and you cannot legally enter into a contract in the U.S. until you're 18...sort of puts contract work off limits.

 

Oddly, though, there is one U.S. state in which a person must be 19 to enter into a binding contract, and Upwork seems to allow 18-year-olds from that state.
