Hi Amel,

They want you to use the variable 'name', so you want to do something like this:

name = "Amel"
subject =  "Treehouse loves "  +  name

Also, make sure you're using the correct capitalization - your original code has 'treehouse', where the assignment wants to see 'Treehouse'.

Best, Cena

THANKS SO MUCH!!!

name="Amel"
subject=  "treehouse loves"  +  "Amel"

You have not used your name variable in the concatination. Your subject line should be...

subject = "Treehouse loves " + name
