Python Write Better Python Cleaner Code Docstrings

What is wrong here?

Please identify how the program is not "seeing" the docstring.

starter.py
class Treehouse:
    """Gives a pleasant message about the student."""
    def student(self, name):
        return '{} is a great Treehouse student!'.format(name)

Hi Mduduzi,

Add a docstring to Treehouse.student.

It is looking for the docstring under the "student" method, not the class itself.

Hope this helps.

Saw it too Thanks.
