This should pass the challenge as it is, try again (perhaps after restarting your browser).

But for future coding, you never need to compare a Boolean to "true", you can test it just by naming it:

if (isAdmin) {

Hey phouvaboungnaseng,

That's odd - I tried it with your code and it works fine. Just as Steven suggested, refresh your browser, that might help.

const isAdmin = true;
const isStudent = false;
let message;

if(isAdmin === true) {
  message = "Welcome admin"
}

Hope this helps.
