The code is all there already it just needs to be reordered. Take a look:

var secret;
do {
  secret = prompt("What is the secret password?");    
} while ( secret !== "sesame" );
document.write("You know the secret password. Welcome.");

First we declare secret but give it no value. Then we start our do while loop and we keep asking the user for the secret password until they type "sesame". When they do type the correct password we write a welcome message to the document. Hope this helps!
