Hello Cat

Your recording was clear and of good audio quality, and background noise was minimal. Your voice is also very pleasant.

However, it was a touch on the loud side. If you reduce the volume by 1 - 2 db it would meet the required specification.

I noted that there were a few plosives (popping 'p' sounds.) It would be worth your getting or making a pop filter to minimize these.

This video has some useful information about pop filters:
