Transgender with upcoming name change - what will happen to my client reviews?

Hi all,
I hope this is the right place to ask.

I've been working exclusively on Upwork for years and as a result, have heaps of reviews from clients on my profile - reviews I'd very much like to keep!

However, as a trans person, I am in the middle of legally changing my name and gender. I understand that changing my name on my profile will not be an issue as such, but what about all of my previous reviews from clients? Seeing as many of these reviews include both my old name and female pronouns, I'm worried that I'd have to have them all deleted - or would a member of the Upwork team be able to correct them so they correspond to my new name and pronouns?

Thanks for any help as this worries me a lot!
