The challenge wants you to create a function that removes vowels from any word that is passed to the function. So disemvowel("Tiago") would return "Tg".

There are several different ways to go about solving this. One possible way would be:

  • Create an empty string
  • Loop over the original word, checking if the current character is a vowel. If it is not, add it to the end of the new string that you created in previous step.
  • Return the new string
