Hello--

Yes, your grammar and mechanics are correct in this sentence.  One small issue though; if this is for an academic piece, it's generally best to avoid the second-person voice (you/your/you're/you'll).  This is because second-person referents can be a bit vague, and more importantly, it's too informal because you sound as though you're directly speaking to the reader, and you can't assume readers agree with you. 


I think your sentence reads nicely as it is, and it is grammatically correct, but if you're unsure whether second-person voice is appropriate, I'd stick to third-person referents such as "people," "he/she/they," or "individuals" etc.
