How do I create a player variable with the string 'Jasmine' in it?

var player = "jasmine"; player = "jasmine";

:warning: The string "jasmine" and the string "Jasmine" are different.

:point_right: Notice the uppercase "J" and the lowercase "j". JavaScript is case-sensitive, meaning that lowercase letters aren't the same thing as uppercase letters.

:bulb: Also, to make your program simpler, you can remove the player = "jasmine" line of code. You've already made the player variable with the value of "jasmine".

Happy coding! :tada: :confetti_ball: :tada:

I hope this helps :grin:
