Hi Victor, there are a couple of minor issues with your code. In your for loop you need to print out each item, not the entire array, on a side note it's good practice to give things a singular name so you know it's a single item, like so:

for item in items:
    print(item)

Secondly we need to break out of the loop if the current item is "STOP", we are not checking the entire array. Also we should put that piece of code before the print statement so that the loop is broken out of before the word "STOP" can be printed

Hope that helps!!
