I think you need to review Strings:

For starters you need to capitalize the type for your string variable, it should read: String firstName

Next remember how strings are represented in Java, they need to have quotations around them, so if you are assigning firstName it should be: String firstName = "Name goes here!".

I will assume that you can use this knowledge to solve the rest of the problem, but if you need more assistance let me know.

Again I recommend rewatching the video preceding this challenge, and then any video covering Strings.
