Hi, everyone! I'm Mauricio and I'm new on this platform, I work on translations from English to Spanish and vice versa, I live in Venezuela, apart from this, I'm  an English teacher and  I teach conversational English mostly to teenagers and adult people, I rarely work with children. What I want to learn here is first, how it works, and I'm doing my best to get it, unless I haven't got my first job yet, I'm sure that it will come in any time, so I keep getting better my profile and sending proposals meanwhile. Talking about what inspired me to be here, I think is: I need another income apart from what I have now because it's not enough anymore, so I have to look for other chance to improve my income. On the other hand, I'm a follower of  @elmiguelsebio, he's a top rated freelancer on this platform and it could be said that he inspired me somehow.

Hello Everyone,

I am excited to connect!

I am technically not a newcomer, I took a hiatus from the platform after being hired onto a long-term project spanning from 2020 to this January, but I'm back at it and eager to reignite my presence and momentum.

I'm based in Queens, NY, and have a wealth of experience as a videographer and editor. My career to this point has encompassed diverse projects, ranging from broadcast news editing and documentaries to crafting engaging social media content and dynamic music videos.

One piece of advice I often get from fellow production professionals is to niche down my serivces and focus on one "genre" of video production (music videos or film, or real estate, or social media, etc).
Initially resistant, I'm now trying embrace the idea and am now working on spotlighting and promoting my specific strengths when selecting gigs.  

For those interested, feel free to explore my reel and Upwork profile:

Looking forward to connecting and collaborating with the community again!

Hello to all,

My name is Donna and I was born and live in the UK. I opened this account to further my writing skills and hopefully offer my skills to help others. I am a freelance writer with a passion for words and making them come alive. My love of reading and writing started from childhood where I would lose myself in worlds of fantasy and fiction and creative writing and would love for the chance to be involved with scripts and narration for games. I am very good at statements and letters for use in a professional manner. Very nice to meet you all and be part of such a creative community. Look forward to hopefully working with people. Stay safe and well

Hello everyone:  I'm Cielo Rocío, I'm from Colombia, I am a Social Communicator and Journalist, I'm learning Digital Marketing and SEO. I have a lot of experience in the "real world" but not much in a "virtual world", but I am exciting to be in Upwork, for me is an achievement. I look forward to my first client, my first prooper virtual job, but honestly, I don't know where to star. I´m ready to read your suggestions.


Welcome! I recommend starting with the Upwork Academy videos to learn as

Hello 😊👋

I am Marta, and I'm new to upwork.

I'm an interior designer. My love for interior design, decorating and making a place feel like home yet look stylish, has been with me for as long as I can remember. 
In the past year I finished college for economics and management, as well as and academy for interior design. What i want to say is that when it comes to interior design there is nothing that can make me put it off since i was able to finish both in the same time.

I come from Macedonia, and am happy to work remote at any given time.

My skills are always being developed, and i love learning new styles, new programs and new ways to make my projects perfect. I am hardworking and focused to the max.

I'm hoping that this experience and hopefully the people i get to meet, will help me become successful at this job that i love.
