Proof of Native English Speaking Author

Repeatedly, when I attempt to apply for proposals, the requirements are saying that I do not meet certain criteria because I am NOT a native English speaking author, or something to that respect. I am American, born, bred, and raised in the United States, frankly, I think it would be impossible for me to be more Caucasian that I already am. How do I change this status or submit information to UpWork to make it so I fit this requirement?

 Go to your profile and edit your English language proficiency to "Native / Bilingual"

Also, being a native English speaker has nothing to do with being "Caucasian!!"

I completely agree with your reply, my being English speaking, native born, has NOTHING to do with the color of my skin. Please do not consider that a snide or racial statement. That is not appropriate. I apologize profusely if it "read" like that. No disrespect to anyone. I appreciate the direction and have followed your direction and updated my profile to reflect the change. Thank you so much for taking a time to answer my question and help me with my UpWork experience.
