Im not sure what im doing in this code wrong. i would like help to figure out what im doing wrong

const isAdmin = false;
const isStudent = true;
let message;

if ( isAdmin ) {
  message = 'Welcome admin';
let isStudent = false; 
let isStudent = true;

if (isStident) { 
  // code inside this clause will *not* run because the 
  // value of cat is false.
  } else if (isStudents) { (message) "Welcome Students" 
  // code inside this clause *will* run because 
  // the first `if` statement evaluated to false
    // the value of isStudent is true}

Here are a few hints:

  • a variable should only be declared one time
  • the instructions ask you to (only) "Add an else if clause ..."
  • you won't need to create any new variables
  • be careful of spelling ("isStident" and "isStudents" vs. "isStudent")
