Statements like “I believe” or “I could not find…” put the focus more on you than on your topic and make you seem less credible. You usually don’t need to talk about yourself unless you have a really good reason e.g. personal experience–used sparingly–or primary research–interviews, surveys, etc. that you have personally written and conducted.
