Here's a way I thought of...

def disemvowel(word):
    result = ''
    for letter in word:
        if letter.lower() not in 'aeiou':
            result += letter
    return result

All I'm doing here is I'm going through every letter in the string and checking to see if it's not a vowel. If it's not a vowel, we will append the letter to the result. Finally we return the result.

I hope this helps :grin:

Happy C0D1NG! :tada:
