Python Object-Oriented Python Instant Objects __init__

first class _init__ challenge

Stuck on this one for a little while but checking against my notes and discussion boards, it's not clear why I'm getting the Bummer: Try again prompt.

Any help is appreciated. (As a comment, the lessons to the Object Oriented Python have not been incredibly clear. I've had to rewatch lessons a few times and still feel like I'm not connecting the dots).

first_class.py
class Student:
    name = "Your Name"

    def __init__(self, name, **kwargs):
        self.name = name
        for attribute, value in kwargs.items():
            seattr(self, attribute, value)

    def praise(self):
        return "You inspire me, {}".format(self.name)

    def reassurance(self):
        return "Chin up, {}. You'll get it next time!".format(self.name)

    def feedback(self, grade):
        if grade > 50:
            return self.praise()
        return self.reassurance()

NEVER MIND - saw my typo. Although, my comment still stands. Looking through the related discussions, I'm not the only one who couldn't connect the dots for this section of the Python track.

Congratulations on resolving your own issue. :+1:
For the benefit of other readers, the issue is due to "seattr" instead of "setattr".
