how to do this

i dont know what to write

first_class.py
class Student:
    name = "jason"

    me = Student().
    print(me)

Well first of all you want to bring 'me' and the 'print' statement below it out of the class, once you do that you want to create an instance of the class by doing 'me = Student()' which creates the instance, then the challenge wants you to print the name which is 'print(me.name)'. The reason why you do the 'me.name' is because it takes the instance of Student and prints the 'name' variable within it. Hopefully that helped...

class Student:
    name = "Michael"

me = Student()
print(me.name)
