don't understand

I'm not sure what i'm suppose to do here with the instance

class Student:
    name = "Tinkerbell"

Hi Emily,

You can create an instance of a class like this:

me = Student()

Now 'me' is an instance, so it has access to all the attributes and methods from the Student class. So to print out the name attribute of this instance you can do it like this:

class Student:
    name = "Tinkerbell"

me = Student()
