Welcome to Librivox, Gaby! :clap:

Are you using your iPhone to record and then Audacity to edit and export as mp3?

I get the sample rate wrong, it should be 44100 Hz, but in your recording it is 16000 Hz. If you are recording in the iPhone, check the settings of your recording app, if there is an option for the recording quality, to be set at 44100 Hz, or 44,1 KHz.
If not, you'll have to change it in Audacity. Make sure you have the Selection Toolbar visible (from menu View -> Toolbars, check Selection Toolbar), then you can choose 44100 Hz from the drop-down menu of Project Rate (Hz). I think that should do it.

Then, when exporting as mp3 from Audacity, check the format options in the Export Window, and choose "Constant" for Bit Rate Mode, and "128 kbps" for Quality. Then click Save to export and upload your new file here to check again :D

¡Spectacular!
:clap:

Tech specs are now correct :thumbs:
Just a couple of tools for whenever you're inclined to use them. These are optional:
The Noise Removal effect in Audacity may eliminate the faint background noise, here's a guide: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Noisecleaning_With_Pics#Clean_up_the_Noise:_Audacity_versions_from_2.1.0
The Checker ( https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Checker ) can tell you the volume of your exported mp3 file, in case your volume changes and needs amplifying.

Right! You're all set! I hope you find projects that interest you to get involved. Have fun!
