Template literals

Just out of curiosity, why are you using template literals instead of user.name and user.age?

template literals are strings with dynamic elements within them. its like a kind of short hand, it just makes writing strings a lot faster. instead of concatenating user.name + " is " + user.age + " years old", you can just simply add the elements inline using template literals `${user.name} is ${user.age} years old`.
