Very little response to proposals; is it my Profile?

Could someone please take a quick look at my profile and possibly tell me why I am getting so little response to proposals? I have submitted over 50 proposals and only had 3 people respond but not hire me. Just curious if I may need to tweak my Profile. Thanks!

My opinion is to remove "Although I am new to Upwork" they already know that, furthermore, write above How can I help you? Then explain how you can help, and keep the explanation of your experience below that.

Don't use " I " much.

Thank you, I have eliminated many of the "I"'s and reworded other bits as well.

You need to do that in all the paragraphs.

I made the additional changes and just deleted the specialized profiles, as I don't really use them anyway. This may help me look more focused on bookkeeping. Thank you so much!

I am unable to complete my profile, as I have no social account to link. I don't see any other options for completing it to 100%.
