Hi Ifeoma! Your else statement is indented. Unindent it and your code should work just fine. As it is, your else statement is set to happen inside of your if statement so it will only happen if age is greater than or equal to 13. Let me know if you need more help. :)

It worked! Thanks nakalkucing :)
