why the nav is not center as the code in the video :(

I have fallowed easy step to create max width of navbar and footer but for some reason, my text in the navbar is not aligned with the text I below as in the video.

I would have to make extra changes by myself adding extra code and make the code more complex... :( I wanna have the same result as the author of the video even though the code looks exactly the same .. I can't find the issue
