JavaScript JavaScript Basics Making Decisions in Your Code with Conditional Statements Write an 'if' Statement

Any help for this conditional statement?

I've written this:

I cannot see what I'm doing wrong. Thanks for the help.

let isAdmin = true;
const isStudent = false;
let message;

if (isAdmin === true){
 let message = "Welcome admin"; 

Hi Phil Smithies,

You're creating a brand new variable in if block. Use above message variable inside the block instead of creating new one.

let isAdmin = true
const isStudent = false
let message

if (isAdmin) {
  message = "Welcome admin"


Sorry Ashish Mehra I don't quite understand, the isAdmin isn't a new variable no as it was already declared above?

Ashish Mehra just got it.. thanks for the help!
