None of the wording in your overview text is original. It all is copied directly from other profiles. The paragraphs you used appear on other oDesk and Elance profiles.
I am not going to name the other contractors here. They, too, may have simply copied their profile text.
As a graphic designer nobody expects you to be a great writer. But I don't know... If you simply copied your profile from somebody else... don't you worry that clients will suspect you just copy your graphics and design work from somewhere else, rather than create original work yourself?
Please, update your profile overview clearly describing your skills and experience. Make sure it is well-written, does not have spelling or grammatical errors and the words are capitalized where appropriate. Once you have updated your profile, please respond to the email notification so the oDesk Team can review it and assist you further.

Nonso, certain aspects of your profile appear to be somewhat inaccurate...
I created an account 1 month before. But still showing in my account Your profile is under review You should hear back within 24 hours. You will be able to apply to jobs once your profile is approved. I completed all test task and result pass, my profile also completed 100%. Kindly do some favour.
I just looked at your profile and it "only" lists your experiences. Could you maybe expand a bit on specifics, projects you worked on (e.g. data entry for real estate agent, collecting contact information for furniture business - I am making these up as examples!). Some sort of employment history could help (even if you were freelancing for companies, anything you worked on for a longer period). Portfolio items also always help too, maybe an example file or screenshots of previous work, etc.
Many people "claim" to have experience in this in that. If you talk about the specifics a bit in your profile, potential clients will get a better sense that you actually know what you are writing about.
Right now your profile looks like you didn't spend much time on it, just list some skills, and be done. That doesn't necessarily leave a good impression for potential clients.
If a new freelancer comes here and does not take the time to read how to create a good profile and then do so, then they don't deserve to work here. If I was a profile approver I'd simply toss your profile to the side and wait for you to do things properly. If you can't do that, then don't come here an whine that it's taking a long time.
Do it right the first time and you'll get approved. If you can't do it right, go somewhere else. This site is full of information on how to do your profile. Start reading and learning.
Hey guys, I'm new to the freelancing side of oDesk. I created an account (around 15 days).
Your profile is under review
I have checked and it looks like you profile still hasn't been approved. The main problem is that your profile title doesn't describe you as a professional and the type of work you do. Additionally, there are a few errors in your profile overview that need to be fixed.
