You have first created a class named Student and gave it an attribute name, you then assigned name to "Gard" like this name = "Gard"

class Student:
    name = "Gard"

Now you have to create an instance of this class Student, to create an instance šŸ‘‡

class Student:
    name = "Gard"

šŸ‘‡ # This is an instance (me)
me = Student()

print(me.name) šŸ‘ˆ  #An instance of that class, has access to all attributes and methods within a class.
