Const vs Let

Here you are defining your variable with the keyword const. If the object were updated with a new value for string, would this be a problem? Should the variable be defined with the keyword let instead?

Defining an object with "const" only prevents the variable referencing that object from being changed. Any properties inside the object can still be changed.

When the properties cannot be changed, the object is said to be "frozen". That's not related to the object being "const".
