Don't know what I'm doing wrong here?

Here is my code for the second part of the code challenge.

class Student:
    name = 'Rachel'
from first_class import Student
    me = Student()
    print (me.name)

Hi Rachel,

1) You don't need to import the class, as you are writing your code in the same file as you create(d) the class

2) Check the spacing in your code. The instance needs to be created outside the class. Also, remove the space after print.

Thank you for your help! I was able to pass!

That doesn't work for me
