    You are a thoughtful young man and your video touches on issues that concern us all. Your speech is somewhat halting at times and your video could be improved with work on your presentation. But, hey, you probably did as well or better than I could have done.

    Yeah, I wrote down the topics I wanted to cover on my laptop and then forgot to bring it with me when I set up the shoot *facepalm*

    Thank you, I liked your video
    It was well thought out and and you had some good info
    on it .
    The trouble I have making a video or training someone
    in a class is the same one you had and that was keeping
    a smooth flow of words and though going.
    you may try a cheat sheet in front of you with
    the facts you would like to get across and the order
    that you will present them in.
    Also if you are glancing down at a sheet that you have in
    front of you ,people will assume that they are
    hearing facts not just something you are pulling
    out of thin air.
    it will also keep you from having to remember the
    facts and let you focus on presentation.
    again thanks for your video and thoughts

    I'll give you the more direct route...I evaluate 9th grade speeches all the time.
    Now since you have asked for some feedback, I'm going to cut to the chase here...

    First congrats on making the effort, most of us here watching...wouldn't make the attempt.

    That aside...try it again. To give yourself better presentation, have some note cards or place some info beyond the camera so you know exactly where you're headed.

    Sit up straight, it's not a conversation with your girlfriend. I think you have some serious points here, and again, I applaud your efforts.

    Now...
    Look into the camera the entire time, looking off to the left or down makes it seem that you either are not sure of your facts, or your are too nervous to be taken seriously.

    Work on cutting out the "a...a...a's"...be sure of your facts and sources...have them printed so you can quote them 'factually'.

    Smile and learn proper use of the hands...don't play with your fingers or touch your face. Your hands should be used to give emphasis to the stronger messages in your delivery.

    Either get more factual info, or cut your present ideas from 5 minutes down to 3 minutes.

    I wish you well in your efforts...

    Why not give it another try...I think you're headed in the right direction.

    I am with retsupt99. Content is good... presentation skills not so. practice practice practice :-) Use the laptop as a "teleprompter"

    also: zoom in more. You get lost in the background.

    Not bad. Move the camera in closer. More of you & less background because you appear to be too far away.
    Possibly flip the camera and change the presentation format from horizontal to vertical.
