Please critique my first VO

As the title suggests, this is my very first attempt at VO. I'd really appreciate your honest criticism so I can get this right. Hold nothing back.

I'm looking for suggestions concerning everything from delivery and enunciation, to EQ, mastering and audio/production quality of the attached file.

I have thick skin, and truly appreciate even those comments that are sometimes hard to take. It's how we grow.

If you'd like more info on what my setup/gear is for more detailed feedback, please just let me know.

The following clip is a 30 second promo for the Boys & Girls Club of America.

I have no experience in this line of work, but my ears it sounds good, perhaps a tad bright and harsh s-sound, maybe some subtle de-essing?
Very interested hear about your chain and what eq/comp you've been using!

Thanks for the feedback Fredde. I'll tweak things a bit to take down the brightness and adjust the de-essing as you suggested.

As far as my chain goes, I've tried to keep it really simple to reduce noise. I used an SM7b for mic, into a Focusrite ISA One, then out to an Mbox 3 using Pro Tools 9.

All EQ/comp is done in Pro Tools. I've tried using various reverb plugins as well, jury is still out on how to best utilize those.
