Make sure the section element is between the header and footer. Write like this problem why?

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <header>
    <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet">
    <title>My Portfolio</title>
  </header>
  <body>

      <li><a href="#">About</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Work</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>            
    </ul>

You have your <header> enclosing your <link> and <title> elements. A <head> element would normally go there. The challenge asks you to put your <header> below the first <body> tag and close it out after the first <p> tag. With the way the challenge progresses this would put your <section> element opening beneath the closing </header> and closing above the opening <footer>. It appears that this is what is causing this problem. Hope this helps!

A typical problem, but this is normal, in the process of creating a site https://grillguru.org/ we often had such trifles. With practice and time, you become more attentive.
