You have a spelling error in the first line of your message variable. It says peson.name instead of person ;) I have run the code again and noticed you had an out of place closing </p> tag at the end of the message. Meaning, you didn't add the tag within the ' ' quotes.

The last line should read as follows:

message += "<p>I have " + person.skills.length + " skills: " + person.skills.join(", "); + "</p>"

I found three issues

1) A typo for person.name here

var message = '<p> Hello. My name is' + peson.name 

2) Use of parentheses for the join method

message += person.skills.join(', ') + '</p>';

3) Same line quotes around the closing paragraph tag

message += person.skills.join(', ') + '</p>';
