I don't think you can work on a school visa here.

Hi Osamuyimen,

 

You should use an address where you are currently residing, which would be in the U.S. Also, as Jennifer noted, you need to check with a legal adviser if you have a permit or a proper type visa to work on Upwork legally while you are in the U.S.

 You are unlikely to be allowed to work here at all

 

Read this, especially this part:

 

"If you are living in the U.S., you need to be either a permanent resident or a citizen to work as a freelancer on Upwork. Most other visa holders, including B-1, B-2, F-1, J-1, H-1, H1-B, H-4, or L-2 visas, are not eligible to work on Upwork."
