profile system error

Hello Upwork,

 

There has been a mistake on my profile.  I believe it may be a system error.  When I submitted a proposal for a job, the system said that English is not my native language and this is the client's preferred requirement.  This is not true.  I was born and raised in the US (Cleveland, Oho).  I even went through you guys verification process and took a photo of my driver's license in order to apply for US candidate only jobs.  Please fix this right away.  Thanks.

Oberia, if you go to your profile from your job feed page, you can edit this to native/bilingual under "languages"on the right-hand side of your profile. There should be a little green pen editing icon.

 Fix it yourself.

It is not "a system error" - your English level is currently set to "fluent" and all you need to do is go to Find Work > Profile and change your English from fluent to native / biligual by hovering your mouse to the right of it and clicking on the pencil icon that appears.
