Please review

I started using Upwork the same day with Mr. A. We work in the same company. I have done more hours than him.

Mr. A is now a top rated plus seller on Upwork but I'm not.

How is this possible?

Is Upwork discriminatory?

Does this have anything to do with the fact that I live in Africa while he lives in another region.

Please review and tell me the reason why I'm not a top rated yet, but Mr. A is.

Thanks
