Basic JavaScript - Profile Lookup

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.

Hello, I think I have the right code but I can’t seem to solve the first part of the problem.

Would appreciate any feedback!

The function should check if name is an actual contact’s firstName and the given property (prop) is a property of that contact.

If both are true, then return the “value” of that property.

Your code so far

// Setup
const contacts = [
    firstName: "Akira",
    lastName: "Laine",
    number: "0543236543",
    likes: ["Pizza", "Coding", "Brownie Points"],
    firstName: "Harry",
    lastName: "Potter",
    number: "0994372684",
    likes: ["Hogwarts", "Magic", "Hagrid"],
    firstName: "Sherlock",
    lastName: "Holmes",
    number: "0487345643",
    likes: ["Intriguing Cases", "Violin"],
    firstName: "Kristian",
    lastName: "Vos",
    number: "unknown",
    likes: ["JavaScript", "Gaming", "Foxes"],

function lookUpProfile(name, prop) {
  // Only change code below this line

for(let i = 0; i < contacts.length; i++) {
  if(name === contacts[i].firstName && contacts[i].hasOwnProperty(prop)){
    return contacts[i][prop];
  } else if(name === contacts[i].firstName && !contacts[i].hasOwnProperty(prop)) {
    return "No such property"
  } else {
    return "No such contact"
  // Only change code above this line

lookUpProfile("Akira", "likes");
