If i want to echo 2 different keys in my array on separate lines how would i write that out?

This is the code that i wrote

    $eye_colors = array(
        "Kim" => "Green", 
        "Martia" => "Blue", 
        "Kevin"=> "Brown"
   );

   echo $eye_colors["Martia\n"];
   echo $eye_colors["Kevin"];

And this is the result when i try to load the page

Notice: Undefined index: Martia in /home/treehouse/workspace/index.php on line 51

Yeah, i want the eye_color for martia and kevin to print out in 2 different lines. If i just type it out like this

echo $eye_colors["Martia"];

echo $eye_colors["Kevin"];

This is what is what it prints on the screeen
