Just 2 little typos, the last selection in your object doesn't need a coma, also the var message is missing the ";"

i have corrected the code below

var person = { name: 'Sarah', country: 'US', age:35, treehousestudent: true, skills: ['JavaScript', 'HTML','CSS']

}

function print(message) {

var div = document.getElementById('output').innerHTML = message; }

var message = '<p> Hello. My name is ' + person.name + ' </p>'; print(message);
