I was about to build a profile on upwork despite already hearing of foul play and scammers, people like that are everywhere and it is to be expected, sadly. But the way Upwork handled the situation FROM THE BEGINNING is a huge slap in the face. Upwork is doing a lot of damage to freelancers of all backgrounds, from all over the world, by enabling this kind of treatment. Your work is worth a lot, don’t let platforms like Upwork belittle your profession, whether you came from the Art Center or a public University in India. I recommend Roberto Blake and The Futur on YouTube if you need any guidance as to how to get more clients and how much to charge. You did the right thing Shadi!
