Hey Jorge Grajeda, you are closer than you think.

  • the me assignment is indented too far and is being interpreted as part of the class definition. Remove the indentation from the assignment.
  • the print also needs the indentation removed. Plus, print is a function, it needs the printed object inside parens
  • since the name is an attribute of me, it can be referenced using me.name

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!
