Python Object-Oriented Python Instant Objects __init__


I am a little thrown off with this particular code challenge. I am not sure what I am doing wrong.

class Student:
    name = "Your Name"

     def __init__ (self, name, **kwargs):
        self.name = name

    for key, value in kwargs.items():
        setattr(self, key, value)

    def praise(self):
        return "You inspire me, {}".format(self.name)

    def reassurance(self):
        return "Chin up, {}. You'll get it next time!".format(self.name)

    def feedback(self, grade):
        if grade > 50:
            return self.praise()
        return self.reassurance()

Python is very picky about indentation, and the "def" line is one space out of alignment with the other lines at the same nesting level.

I managed to fix it but its still telling me that it is incorrect. It gives me the error that "student is missing"

I was able to pass task 1 just by pasting in your __init__ method, and then shifting the "def" line left by one space.
You'll need to add some more code to pass task 2 yet.
