Here are some suggestion that may help your image.
The "eyes" are always the focus point of a portrait shot. As such they should be the most sharp and bright part of the image. In your image the eyes are in shade while the bright spots in the bg are distracting. That reduces the impact of your image.
As BB said cutting parts (mouth) of your subject creates a uneasy feel to the viewer so try to check your framing before pressing the shutter button
Just as a visual help to my comments I re-edited your image for you to see. It it just a quick interpretation (a bit exaggerated for example purpose) that I hope you don't mind, but it is intended to help you develop your own vision. I will delete my re-edit once you have seen it.
Keep shooting and keep posting. You seem to have all the right attitude to learn
