Sometimes I have other attributes I need to store on a Student instance, though. Can you use **kwargs and setattr

Hello, I don't see where my mistake is in this. It is asking me to add the **kwargs in the parameter and use the setattr function.

class Student:
    name = "Your Name"

    def __init__(self, name, **kwargs):
        self.name = name
        for key, value in kwargs.items():
            setattr(self, key, value)

    def praise(self):
        return "You inspire me, {}".format(self.name)

    def reassurance(self):
        return "Chin up, {}. You'll get it next time!".format(self.name)

    def feedback(self, grade):
        if grade > 50:
            return self.praise()
        return self.reassurance()

It works now. I definitely refreshed a few times before submitting this question to the community. I even started over in case it was a tab and spaces issue and restarted my browser. This has happened to me a few times now and it is getting frustrating, Why do you think there isn't an editor tab in the Python courses like there are in other courses? If we could look at our errors I'm sure it would save a lot of time for everyone. Sorry, and thank you for listening to my rant.
