Hey Geovanny Reyes,

You're close! Let's just fix a few things:

First, you need to create your Person instance and assign it to a constant aPerson OUTSIDE of your structure.

Second, after you do this, you need to call the getFullName() method you created on that aPerson constant holding the instance of Person. You will assign the result of this method call to a constant called fullName.

struct Person {
    let firstName: String
    let lastName: String

    func getFullName() -> String {
        return "\(firstName) \(lastName)"
    }
}

let aPerson = Person(firstName: "Geovanny", lastName: "Reyes")
let fullName = aPerson.getFullName()

Good Luck!
