I've been looking for clients for more than 2 months now and still no one would trust and hire me. I am depress and I feel like I'm useless I even bought connects to send proposals and no one contacted me. What is written on my profile is what I can offer. I feel hopeless and hopeless everyday

Karen Grace: you may create portfolio items which consist of descriptions of successful work you have done in the past... specific examples of ways you have helped clients or customers.
Many clients like to see portfolio items.
But also: Don't be a customer service worker. There are millions of these. Why should a client hire you instead of one of the million customer service workers from your country?
You may indeed find good jobs and clients doing this. But if you want to accelerate your trajectory, break out of this box and be something more.

Hey Adediran A,
after looking at your profile, these would be my observations:
• most importantly you don't have a portfolio so clients can't see your previous work
If you are just starting out, maybe do some "free" work on 99designs for example or just design something so you can build a portfolio
• your education or job history isn't related to graphic design, though that isn't necessarily a problem
• you should mention softwares you are skilled in for the Skills section (Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.)
• your hourly rate is too low in my opinion, in my experience clients don't really trust freelancers that have such a low rate.
Hope this helps.
