Hi Aaron,

The variables(isAdmin, isStudent, message) are all declared before the conditional. You use the "if" conditional to check if isAdmin is true. If it is "true" then you assign the value "Welcome admin" to the message variable.

Like this:

const isAdmin = true;
const isStudent = false;
let message;

if (isAdmin === true) {
  message = "Welcome admin";
}

I hope this helps and Happy Coding!

Hi Aaron,

The fastest way to get answers is to post your issue in the community forum as you did on this one. If I see a new community forum post from you I will take a look at it.

Thanks, Heidi
