toUpperCase() ?

What exactly am I doing wrong? (I've also tried creating a new variable too) => let newRole = role.toUpperCase();

app.js
let firstName = "Michael";
let lastName = "Wolberg";
let role = 'developer';
let msg = firstName + " " + lastName + ":" + role.toUpperCase() + ".";

When I check it, it tells me that "Use the .toUpperCase() method to convert the role string to all upper-case."

It's saying that I'm not doing it correctly.

i tested your code in my browser and it worked ok. I then did the challenge via teamtreehouse. The only thing i did different is

let msg = firstName + " " + lastName + ":" + role.toUpperCase();

and it worked for me .
