How One 16-Year-Old in India Has Made Over $1,500 on Fiverr in 3-Months Selling Automation Solutions

Gone are the days when a fancy college degree needed to be presented to a client before they took a chance on a service and signed their name to an invoice. In the world of freelancing, if an individual can show up, get the job done, and do it in the allotted timeframe, the client is content. The client is so content, in fact, that they then return for more, since using the same service provider repeatedly saves them the time of onboarding another freelancer.

It’s a new dawn in the world of remote work, one where barriers to entry like college degrees and expensive tuitions do not deter the talented and work-hungry individuals from making a name for themselves. That’s why one 16-year-old high school student in India, Varun Arora, is leveraging Fiverr to its fullest extent in the building-out of his online business.

A Willingness to Make It Work

Having known about Fiverr for years, posting services here-and-there to make some petty cash, Varun began to take the site seriously after seeing CNBC’s coverage of Alexandra Fasulo in March 2021. Inspiring Varun to revisit Fiverr with newly acquired tips and suggestions, in just three-months, the student of Delhi Public School, Bangalore East has made over $1,500 with the amount increasing month-over-month.

Tapping into his AI and ML educational background, having been one of the 100 selected from the entire nation of India to take part in Intel’s AI4Youth Pilot program, Varun spent time identifying his skillset and unique value proposition that he could be offering Fiverr clients – at an affordable and reasonable rate. The results can be witnessed in six different Fiverr gigs on his profile presently, ranging from ‘scraping, downloading or uploading data, performing automation tasks using Python and Selenium,’ to ‘training custom object detection, image classification using Tensorflow or Yolo.’

Even more impressive, Varun’s Fiverr profile is unabashedly Gen Z, playing to his youth with a fun a clever profile layout that makes him 100% authentic.

“There is a lot of opportunity given the expansion of the internet right now, which is something that I passionately tap into every single day. This internet accessibility is helping shape my ambition to become a tech entrepreneur, and I hope my story can inspire others my age to consider the same option for themselves,” said Varun.

An Entrepreneur in the Making

Varun doesn’t just stop with Fiverr, either. He is the co-founder of the Instagram page FunnyFlightFinds, which presently has 10k+ followers, 3.75 million+ lifetime video views, and 500k+ likes. He is also the founder of Tabular Studies, which was a free educational content website designed to aid students in the learning process. The platform focused on creating visual content that made more technical topics easier to digest for students of every age and background.

It’s safe to say that enterprising is a passion of Varun’s he’s not likely to give up anytime soon. The high school student places his desire to help others at the central focus of everything he does, from teaching fellow students and friends on the side, to streamlining automation solutions for businesses of every variety.

With a perfect 5-star Fiverr profile average and over 21 happy customers that live in India, Hungary, Italy, Mexico, Singapore, United Kingdom, and the United States to name a few, Varun’s story is just at the start of his global domination. He recently crossed the Level 1 ranking mark on Fiverr, well on his way to approach Level 2 by this fall.
