Object Oriented Python "praise" exercise is bugged

The attached solution is giving me the error: Oh no! You forgot to use self. But I am using it. Also, when I run this code from a file on my computer, it works fine.

class Student:
    name = "Carl"    
    def praise(self):
        print("You're doing a great job, {}")

According to the instructions: The method should return a positive message which includes the name attribute. You are printing and have not included the name attribute.
