Bummer: Make sure that you're assigning `message` a string within the conditional statement.

Every time I check my work I get the error: "Bummer: Make sure that you're assigning message a string within..."

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

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

I believe you checked isAdmin variable to false from true. In this case if (isAdmin === true) it will just skip assigning message variable.
