JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Storing and Tracking Information with Variables Create a variable with a string

I can't figure this out at all.

I think I am putting it in right, then it says it is wrong and I can't figure what what is missing and what I need to put in.

app.js
var message = "Hello!";
alert(message);
message = "Goodbye";
alert(message);
message = 'Jasmine';
index.html
<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

<body>
<script src="app.js"></script>

The challenge says "Create a player variable with the string 'Jasmine' in it." It looks like you are changing the message variable to the string 'Jasmine' instead of creating a new variable. The below should work.

var player = 'Jasmine';
