Hi Esloom,

I'm not really sure what you don't understand. The exercise is reminding you that putting your name in like this:

Esloom

won't work, because JavaScript thinks it's a variable, when it's not. But if we put quotes (") around it, JS knows that it's handling a string:

"Esloom"

I hope this helps :)
