I think I done a good job of stating my introduction of stating my thesis. My thesis was Lionel Messi is considered one of the world's greatest soccer players because he has broke Barcelona's all time goal scoring record, he has scored 91 goals in a calender year, and won four straight player of the year awards.

I was very excited to tell talk to my audience about one of my favorite soccer players. At times I feel like I was talking loud and fast. I could have slowed down a little bit to give my audience time to absorb my information. One of my classmates, said that I used “haha” a few times as a verbal filler and I had a few uhhs and umms in my conclusion.
