I am having trouble with this challenge.

The directions are: Now, create a variable named me and assign it an instance of Student().

Then print() out the name attribute of your instance.

This is the code I have so far, what am I missing?

class Student: name="Jenn" me=Student() print name()

first_class.py
class Student:
    name="Jenn"
    me=Student()
print name()

Hi Jenn,

Great that you are learning OOP.

You need to instantiate the class outside of the class. So variable "me" would be outside of the class. To print out the name attribute you would use "print(me.name)".
