The internet has disrupted the way we live. You can do almost anything online now. Buy clothes, order food, pay your bills, and even get a cuddle (hey, we won’t judge). But more importantly, it has disrupted the way we work as well.
We all face different trials and obstacles in our lives. While many are quick to throw in the towel, our next SupaAgent of the month, Melvin, faced life with a steadfast spirit and defied the odds. The loving father persevered through many difficulties to support himself and his family.
As the year comes to an end with Christmas festivities and new year resolutions near in sight, many would take this time to reflect and unwind with family and friends. When you’re in an office-bound job, that’s easy to do. You simply leave the office, take a few days off work and come back when it’s time to start working again. As a digital gig worker, that narrative is not entirely the same. When you’re working from home the line between work and play can get blurred and many articles these days showcase the negative consequences on the wellness of this gig economy workforce. But is it all bad?
The city of Biñan in the Philippines is a thriving city with one of the biggest industrial estates in the nation. It is the home to national hero Jose Rizal and also our next SupaAgent of the month, Jacqueline Sze! This outspoken Tsinoy shares a love for intense bathroom singing, fusion cuisine food and her cute dogs.
Make your way down to the beautiful land of Sabah, Malaysia and ask the people for the dreadlocked lady. Chances are, they might just point you to our next SupaAgent of the month, Nurfareena! The eldest among her siblings, she is loved and pampered silly by her amazing family in Kota Kinabalu.
What happens when your whole family loves singing and decides to name you after a song? You get Delta Dawn, our SupaAgent of the month! Dawn or ‘Dee’ is from the sunny city of Cebu, Phillipines. The loving mom of 2 daughters claims to lack the singing talent as her family members, but she has a knack for cooking and traveling. Read on to find out more about one of our most helpful SupaAgents ever – Dawn. Continue Reading
Bogor earned its nickname “City of Rain” because of the constant rainfall that the Indonesian city gets all year round (even during the “dry” season!). But, that doesn’t reflect in Kevin’s personality at all. He loves living in Bogor because of its cooler climate and greenery fuels his nature-loving soul.
On the outside, Kevin may seem like your standard 22-year old – a young adult who enjoys watching movies and TV shows or playing the occasional computer game – but we spotted a unique drive in him that led to his nomination as August’s SupaAgent of the Month.
We understand that it takes a lot to be inspired and we are exceptionally inspired by July’s SupaAgent of the month – Kay; as she shared with us her two-year journey as a SupaAgent so far. Her commitment and always-helpful attitude definitely makes her stand out and these qualities are one of the many values we look for in our remote agents.
Before Kay joined us as a SupaAgent, she was fully-committed to a corporate job to which she realized wasn’t something she wanted back then. Kay decided to take a leap of faith and left her career in search of a more flexible option. One fine day, while looking online for ways to earn as a freelancer, our SupaAgent ad caught her eye and this marked the beginning of her time with Supahands.
You’d be easily proven wrong if you think that Joshua was “just another entitled millenial”. He is so much more than that and we have had the pleasure of watching him grow throughout the 3 years that he has been with us. Yup, that’s right! At only 22-years old, Joshua is one of the most experienced SupaAgents within the community, having personally seen us grow and scale up over the years.
Learning and knowledge is an important value to us here. So, Joshua was chosen as June’s SupaAgent of the Month because of his undying desire to keep learning and improving. Read more about his dreams and the people who molded him into the driven graduate that he is today.
As the final Wednesday of the month rolls out, it’s always an exciting time for us at Supahands to announce our SupaAgent of the Month and post up an article about them on our blog – but this month is a bit different. Our SupaAgent veterans might already have an inkling, but for our newer additions to our SupaFam, perhaps it’s time to bring those purple Sharpies out and mark your calendars because our SupaAgent of the Month initiative turns one year old today!

We always say that it takes a special type of person to work as a SupaAgent, or just any freelancing jobs in general. Without the constraints of an office environment, it takes discipline and planning in order to make the most out of a career as a freelancer. Speaking to April’s SupaAgent of the month, Sarah, about how she organizes her time really showed us how she made the most out of her role as a SupaAgent so far.
