Hi Brian

To use a variable in JSX, you must wrap it in curly braces like so:

const petName =  'Ernie';
const header = (
  <header>
    <p>I have a pet named {petName}.</p> 
  </header>
);

You might find it useful to have a quick read of Introduction to JSX on the react website.

Hope this helps!

Thank you for the quick response .. I kept trying 'Ernie' , {Ernie} , 'petName", everyone except that one. Thanks again for your help :)
