 Hi, My name is Venkata Rama lakshmi Pulicharla. I've been working as a data analyst for the past four years, and I'm looking forward to connecting with other professionals in my field and learning more about best practices and industry trends.

In my current role, I specialize in Data Visualization • Microsoft Power BI • Microsoft Excel • Exploratory Data Analysis • MySQL, and I've had the opportunity to work on a variety of interesting projects, including 

I've had the opportunity to work on a variety of interesting projects, including some focused on healthcare and mortgage loans.

One of my recent projects involved analyzing healthcare data to identify trends in patient outcomes and treatment effectiveness. I worked closely with a team of healthcare professionals to gather and analyze data from a variety of sources, including electronic health records and patient surveys. We used SAS to clean and process the data, and then developed a series of visualizations and reports to help our clients better understand the data and make informed decisions about patient care.

Another project I worked on involved analyzing mortgage loan data to identify patterns and trends in borrower behavior. We used SAS to process and analyze the data, and then developed a series of predictive models to help our clients better understand borrower risk and make more informed lending decisions.

These projects were both challenging and rewarding, and I'm proud to have been part of the teams that delivered them. I'm excited to be joining the Upwork Community and look forward to connecting with other professionals in the field!

. Outside of work, I enjoy  Singing ,dancing,& painting . I'm always looking for new ways to challenge myself and learn new things.

I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you and contributing to this vibrant community!

As a data analyst, I'm always looking for new ways to improve my skills and stay up-to-date with the latest trends and best practices in the field. I'm hoping to learn from other members of the Upwork Community by participating in discussions, attending events, and sharing my own experiences and insights.

In particular, I'm interested in learning more about how other data analysts are using SAS to solve complex business problems and drive better decision-making. I'm also interested in exploring new tools and techniques for data visualization and analysis, and would love to hear about any tips or tricks that others have found useful.

Outside of work, I'm inspired by [who/what inspires you]. I believe that [briefly explain your beliefs], and I try to apply these principles to everything I do, both personally and professionally.

I'm looking forward to connecting with all of you and learning more about what makes this community so vibrant and engaging!

Hello Everyone 

I'm Mohammed Hamid, from Sudan I'm not new to Upwork but I stopped for a while. Now I came back to follow my passion and complete what I should do long time ago. My work field is Translation and subtitling English <>Arabic, along with transcription, transcreation, MTPE. It's not the first time to be in this business I have done many projects for clients from other platforms,but I do think that Upwork is now the best platforms for any freelancer. Also due to the ongoing fighting in Sudan it's very hard to have any job or find work in the country so freelancing is best choice to do works and help myself and my family financially. Happy to be a part of Upwork and hope to be a valuable members and help Upwork to be more recognizable in Sudan.

Hello, I am Nikki from the Philippines. I work in an international school. I hope to learn new skills and become more financially secure. I feel there are so many new ideas and experiences to explore and I intend to take advantage of the resources I have available for myself at the moment. I am inspired by the fact that there is much more to life than an 8-5 job and that I need to get out and see the world while I am still physically healthy and strong.
