20. You need to show more passion, humor and INSPIRATION
Every thing you said had the elements of these 3 things in the issues and your platform.

I don't get why your voice was not in sync w your mouth.

Maybe better to do a voice over that watches you work.

Show passion, humor and when you do look into the camera,

think about what inspires you, and express that right through your eyes into the camera.

Ru-Paul says, "You've got to OWN IT." and he's 100% correct.

Own that camera lens and talk as if, to your best friends.

To run as a Dem in Fla., you are brave. That bravery is inspiring, and a little swagger is in order.

Inspire people that voting for you is a bold courageous choice.


good Luck
