    The reason for this is that the video was interesting with the cool effects and text in the videos, and the message was memorable. However, it was a little unprofessional to abbreviate you to u. Other than that, you did a great job.

    This is because the video caught and held attention with it’s beautiful transitions and effects. The music was also nice, and it was a good idea to give examples of how to be trustworthy. However, there was a lot of reading, and sometimes text went away a little too fast.
