I picked pause because for the first few seconds I liked it until she started talking ready fast and really loud and she didn't have any pauses and she would take a deep breath in.
P- She was talking super fast, and I couldn't understand what she was saying for some of the time and she kept walking around which was distracting.
V- She was really loud. It might have been the microphone though. But she was very confident in her speech.
E- Most of the time she looked around the room but the paper was distracting when she looked at it. Also, I noticed once she wiped her head from one side to the other.
G- She did a good job with the gestures especially she only had one hand to do it with.

I would click pause because he just sounded boring he had no enthusiasm at all. He didn't look at the crowd at all, only when he flipped to the next card. Also, he was not passionate at all, it seemed as if he just wanted it to end.
P- He was calm and didn't move around be he keep fidgeting with the ring on this note cards and the notecards were very distracting when he flipped them.

V- He had a good volume but if I where him I would change his volume range to add even more excitement.
