You are doing good. Just concentrate on bagging more contracts and finishing them according to the requirements of your client. Good feedback from your client matters more and help you in getting more contracts. Rest of the kudos will follow automatically.
I have all the requirements to have the Rising Talent badge, since one week now, and still it doesn't appear on my profile.
Can I know the reason?
The Rising Talent status is assigned automatically when a freelancer meets the requirements listed here. This process is working as designed and we can't specify a reason why a freelancer isn't eligible for receiving the Rising Talent badge. Once you qualify, you should receive a notification letting you know.
As a gentle reminder, please note that your profile must represent you as an individual and that all the information in your profile including your profile photo needs to be accurate, truthful, and verifiable. Please check this help article for more information on how to update your profile photo.
There are a few other requirements in order to be eligible for the Rising Talent status, you can check here: https://support.upwork.com/hc/en-us/articles/211063228-Become-a-Rising-Talent
A 100% complete profile is only one of the requirements.

- Keep your availability status up-to-date
- Regularly submit proposals to projects that match your skill set
- Adhere to the Upwork Terms of Service
