What does " string FirstName = "Jeremy" " do?

What does " string FirstName = "Jeremy" " do? Does it display something on console? Like "Enter how many minutes you exercised?" or it allows user to give information like name to program? if yes, what does "Jeremy" word signifies?

It says that the variable FirstName of type String that has the word "Jeremy". Now you can change the variables value or you can simply call it to display it somewhere. Right now it 'doesn't do anything', but hold the value.

it stored the string in the variable FirstName in memory so you can use it else where. If not it goes poof.
