Try putting your media query at the very bottom of your stylesheet. The CSS is read from top to bottom. Right now your media query is being overridden by the other h1 rule that comes further down.

Hi Abdirahim,

Have you tried placing your media query code at the bottom of your stylesheet?

yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees, it worked. all i did was move it to the bottom of the css page. i totally forgot about the cascading rule. Thanks every one.
