Python Object-Oriented Python Instant Objects __init__

Honestly dont know where im going wrong with this __init__ challenge

It wants me to add my name argument at the time of creating the instance

first_class.py
class Student:
    def __init__(self, name)

    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()

You are really close. You just need to set the attribute "name" to the argument "name". In other words, when you create a Student, you want that instance's name attribute to get what was passed in as the argument "name". You just need one line under your init method.

Thank you james, just what i needed
