Could someone please tell me what I am doing wrong here? I keep getting the error message "Treehouse not defined" . Treehouse is a class I have created and I am not sure why it is not recognised as that. I have followed the given instructions to write the code below.

class Treehouse:
    product = 'coding courses'

    def __init__(self, name):
        self.name = name
    def learn(self, name):
        return f'{self.name} is learning to code!'
    my_treehouse =Treehouse()
print(my_treehouse.learn(Nicole))

Shared code should be complete and properly formatted. Take a look at these videos about Posting a Question, and particularly this one about using Markdown formatting to preserve the code's appearance. Otherwise, an issue with something like indentation could be completely overlooked.

Hey Nicole A, you appear to have an indentation issue:

# this
    my_treehouse =Treehouse()

# should be
my_treehouse = Treehouse()

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