My python code works perfectly on workspace but not on my mac when i tried to run it through the console, any ideas?

It gives me the following error:

What is your first name? Kareem Traceback (most recent call last): File "hello.py", line 1, in <module> first_name = input("What is your first name? \n") File "<string>", line 1, in <module> NameError: name 'Kareem' is not defined

Here's the code:

first_name = input("What is your first name? \n")


if first_name.lower() == "kareem": print(first_name.capitalize(),'is learning Python')

elif first_name.lower() == "maximilliane": print(first_name.capitalize(), "is learning with fellow students in the community! Me too!")

else: # This is just in case we have a younger user who can't yet read. age = int(input("How old are you?\n")) if age <=6: print("Wow you're {}! If you are confident with your reading already...".format(age)) print ("You should totally learn Python, {}".format(first_name.capitalize())) print("Have a Great day {}!".format(first_name.capitalize()))

You will have different versions of python running on each machine.
