Shouldn't be calling person.fName?

So, if our struct Contact take two parameters fName and lName, when we change the name for "Tom Young" shouldn't we be calling person.fName = "Tom" and person.lName = "Young"?

the initializer of the struct takes two parameters called fname and lname, but the actual properties themselves are named firstName and lastName.

the initializer parameter names are just named different things than the actual properties themselves. to modify the property you have to refer to the actual names, firstName and lastName
