How does one make an instance from a class?

Really stuck with this task as i do not fully understand instances yet? Can anybody help me? The question is "Great work!

Now, make an instance of your class named me.

Then print() out the name attribute of your instance"

first_class.py
class Student:
    name = 'paul'

The syntax for making an instance looks the same as assigning the result of calling a function to a variable:

me = Student()

Okay Steven, thank you.

Hey Steven, I got up to that point. But then how do you print out the name attribute of your instance?

Using the membership operator (a period) you can access an attribute of a class ("me.name"). Then just pass that as the argument in a "print" function call.
