Hey Wilfredo!

Simple fix. You almost had it! Just attach that ".format(name)" from the last line onto the end of your "subject" variable string like this: subject = "Treehouse loves {}".format(name) . That format provides the information that needs to be passed into the curly braces so that it can format the string with your name. You can just delete the last line of your original code after that. Hope that helps. Keep up the coding. Best of luck to you.
