I added person.name = 'Rainbow Dash'; and now it's not showing up in Workspaces. No idea why.

var person = { name : 'Sarah', country : 'US', age : 35, treehouseStudent : true, skills : ['JavaScript', 'HTML', 'CSS'] };

function print(message) { var div = document.getElementById('output'); div.innerHTML = message; }

var message = '<p>Hello. My name is ' + person.name + '.' + '</p>'; message += '<p>I live in the ' + person.country + '</p>'; person.name = 'Rainbow Dash'; message += '<p>But, I wish my name was ' + person.name + </p>'; print(message);

Hi Megan,

You had a small error in your syntax. I think i've fixed it :) the code below should work for you.

There was just a single quotation mark missing.

var person = { 
  name : 'Sarah', 
  country : 'US', 
  age : 35, 
  treehouseStudent : true, 
  skills : ['JavaScript', 'HTML', 'CSS'] 
};

function print(message) { 
  var div = document.getElementById('output'); 
  div.innerHTML = message; 
}

var message = 'Hello. My name is ' + person.name + '. '; 
message += 'I live in the ' + person.country + ' '; 
person.name = 'Rainbow Dash'; 
message += 'But, I wish my name was ' + person.name + ".";

print(message);

try adding HTML <p> tags

var message = '<p>Hello. My name is ' + person.name + '</p>'; message += '<p>I live in the ' + person.country + '.</p>'; person.name = 'SAM R I'; message += '<p> But, my nickname is ' + person.name + '</p>'; print(message);
