converting variable role to uppercase

Hi! this looks like it should be correct, what am I not able to see. Trying to convert the value of role to uppercase

app.js
const firstName= 'Ricky';
const lastName= 'Redman';
const role = 'developer';
let msg= firstName + ' ' + lastName + ': ' + role;
const shout = role.toUpperCase();

This is because in msg you're calling the variable "role" but it should be "shout". Do this:

const firstName = 'Ricky';
const lastName= 'Redman';
const role = 'developer';
const shout = role.toUpperCase();
let msg = firstName + ' ' + lastName + ': ' + shout;

console.log(msg)
