Hello, you just need to add a "id" attribute to the footer element there is no need to add new <div> in t he <footer>. And then you can target the id attribute in css

1st. Add attribute to the footer opening tag:

<footer id="main-footer">

2nd Target the "id" attribute in the CSS file like i did below:

#main-footer { font-size: 40 px; }
