No toast showing when I run the app

So, I'm not sure why but my toast isn't showing. My code is identical to the instructors. Here it is:

package com.jackco.funfacts;

import androidx.appcompat.app.AppCompatActivity;

import android.graphics.Color;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.RelativeLayout;
import android.widget.TextView;
import android.widget.Toast;

public class FunFactsActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
    private FactBook factBook =  new FactBook();
    private ColorWheel colorWheel = new ColorWheel();
    //Declare our view variables
    private TextView factTextView;
    private Button showFactButton;
    private RelativeLayout relativeLayout;

    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        // Assign the views from the layout file to the corresponding variables
        factTextView = findViewById(R.id.factTextView);
        showFactButton = findViewById(R.id.showFactButton);
        relativeLayout = findViewById(R.id.relativeLayout);

        View.OnClickListener listener = new View.OnClickListener() {
            public void onClick(View v) {
                //Get fact from FactBook class
                String fact = factBook.getFact();
                int color = colorWheel.getColor();
                //Update the screen with our new fact


        Toast.makeText(this, "Yay! Our activity was created!", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();

Again, everything works fine, but no toast comes when I start the app. Tried closing and reopening the emulator, but that didn't work. Tried changing to LENGTH_LONG thinking I'm missing it, but that did nothing. Help?
