The challenge should have given you this clue: Bummer: The original string stored in role should not be modified.

So instead of assigning the modified value back to "role", just modify it as you assign "msg".

How would you modify it? i tried giving it a new Var ex shout = role.toUpperCase() and it does not work

It works in my vs code, can't figure out why it doesn't work in a task. Help please.

let firstName = "Anna"; let lastName = "Terentjeva"; let role = "developer"; role = role.toUpperCase(); let msg = ${firstName} ${lastName}: ${role}.; console.log(msg);

You're doing the same thing as the original poster by changing what is in "role". That's not what the instructions ask for. You should apply the method only when you are assigning "msg". Also, there should be no punctuation at the end of the string.

For future issues, always create a fresh question instead of asking one as an "answer". It will reach more students that way.
