Hi Jasmine!
Welcome to LibriVox!
You have a very lovely voice, your recording is absolutely beautiful!

Just a few pointers:

~You don't need to put in an artist name (in this case,'Bethany Funk'). Whatever project you pick, the artist names will automatically get filled in at the cataloguing stage.
~Bit rate should be 128kbps constant. To change this, go to File>Export>Export as MP3 and under Format Options select Constant and 128kbps.
~Volume falls quite low, at 79.8 dB and our target range is 82-96 dB. To bring up the volume, click Ctrl+A on a PC to select all, then go Effects>Amplify and plug in a number in the top box (I'd recommend about 12, maybe 1 or 2 higher) then click OK.

Once you have fixed this, reupload and I will be happy to give it another go!

Hi Jasmine!
I mistyped in the dB range (it's actually 86-92 dB, and I apologize sincerely for switching the numbers around!) :(

Your test is 92.9 dB, which is fine by me just for this, because it was my fault, but just keep the correct dB range in mind for projects.
Again, I apologize...
This test is definitely PL OK!
Welcome to LibriVox, I hope you have a great time here!
