Close! :) The "wa" sound in こんにちは is actually the particle "wa", which is written with the は kana. The same goes for the "wa" sound after わたし.

Also, こんにちは is written with the kana for "ko n ni chi wa". A common mistake (also because when typing in the kana, even if you "spell it correctly", it will still come out wrong due to the way the "n" kana is written in the IME, so you need to be careful of that one). :)

So with the corrections, it would be: 「こんにちは。 わたしはリンカーン・グリーンです。」 (you can add in the little dot between your name by using the / key when in the IME. you don't have to have it, but it can make it a little easier to read).

Otherwise good job! :D Keep at it!
