Hi Nayara, another good essay, but I really prefer essays that end with a strong thesis statement, not an unnecessary sentence saying you are going to prove the thesis to me. As usual, you have some wonderful ideas that are communicated clearly, but you also have some errors in sentence structure and word choice. Overall, I would rate this a band 6.
