I am MD. Shuvo 

As we know, Upwork is not just a platform; it's an active ecosystem where countless individuals come together to establish connections, build dreams, and create success stories. Today, I want to shed light on the power of those apparently small actions that jointly shape the grand arras of our community.

Imagine a world where every keystroke, every line of code, every written word, and every designed pixel is a brushstroke on the canvas of progress. That's the world we inhabit on Upwork. The upwork community is a place where newcomers are always warmly welcomed. I am one of them.

I am new to Upwork. Nice to meet you all. 

Hopefully, we can share our talent with each other like root of a tree.

Thank you all

Shuvo M.

Dear all,


I am Thu Rein from Myanmar. As some of you may already know, Myanmar has been facing significant challenges for a while now. Unfortunately, these difficulties have also affected my job and income, leaving me in a tough situation. I am in need of finding alternative ways to earn money in order to support my family, as we are living in poverty. That is why I turned to Upwork with hope. However, I am currently experiencing difficulties in verifying my ID. The verification section on my phone only provides the option for a passport, which I do not possess at the moment. Instead, I have a government-issued ID and a driver's license. If it would be possible to include these options in the ID verification section, it would greatly assist people like me in Myanmar.


Thank you.

Hello there,

My name is Uchenna Sunday, I am a voice-over talent, and I am not particularly new to Upwork since I have been here for about 3 years. However, I most definitely must be doing something wrong or not doing something at all as I have not gotten a single talent from Upwork ever. I actually believe I do really good voice-overs.
I need help guys... Please, help me... anybody.
