I am stuck in this task can somebody tell me my mistake ?

The task says "Oops, I forgot that I need to break out of the loop when the current item is the string "STOP". Help me add that code!" I wrote this but the bummer says "Didn't find the right items being printed.". Can somebody tell me my mistake? (and please send the code because its easier for me to understand.)

breaks.py
def loopy(items):
    # Code goes here
    for item in items:
        print(item)
        if item == "STOP":
            break

Hi Ramon,

To complete this challenge you will need to put the if statement before the print(item). Here is the code I used to pass this challenge:

def loopy(items):
    # Code goes here
    for item in items:
        if item == "STOP":
            break
        print(item)

Hope this helps! Happy Coding!!!
