JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Making Decisions with Conditional Statements Add an Else If Clause

else if clause help- beginner

i don't understand whats wrong with my code. I thought it would look almost identical to the if statement so I mirrored my else if statement with it. then I thought I had to write it: }else if (isStudent ===true) { alert ("welcome student); {

???? what am I missing?

script.js
var isAdmin = false;
var isStudent = true;

if (isAdmin) {
    alert('Welcome administrator');
} else if (isStudent) {
    alert('Welcome student');
  {
