Challenge: Basic JavaScript - Profile Lookup

Link to the challenge:

A return will stop a loop and the function and return whatever you told it to return. If any of those returns are triggered it will immediately stop then and there and not continue on to the next object.

So what do you think would happen if the name given was anything other then “Akira” with how your code is set up right now?
