Python Object-Oriented Python Instant Objects __init__

still confused

for some reason I am still not getting the correct out put. I thought that maybe the indention of the first def was the issue which I fixed thanks to another member. but it's stating that it could not find student.

first_class.py
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()

You need to indent the for statement because it is part of the init method

class Student:
    def __init__ (self, name, **kwargs):
        self.name = name

        for key, value in kwargs.items():
            setattr(self, key, value)
