You forgot to put a comma after the name in the ryan object and you just need to pass the variable name to greet, like this:

var andrew = {
        name: "Andrew",
        greet:genericGreet
      }

      var ryan = {
        name: "Ryan",
        greet:genericGreet
      }

The way you did it passes the return value from that function and assigns it to greet, this means the greet value will be "Hi, my name is ".

thank you mister!
