trying to study hard through the holiday, please help out with boolean task, can't seem to get it right.

```const isAdmin = true; const isStudent = false; let message= 'isAdmin';

if ('isAdmin' === true){ message=Welcome ad

script.js
const isAdmin = true;
const isStudent = false;
let message= 'isAdmin';


if ('isAdmin' === true){
  message=Welcome admin;
}

'isAdmin' === true compares the types and values of the string 'isAdmin' and the boolean true. Try removing the quotes around isAdmin to compare the value of the variable isAdmin to true.

To set the value of message to the string 'Welcome admin', put quotes around the string.

The challenge is not expecting the value of message to be set outside the if statement, so change the line let message= 'isAdmin'; to let message;
