I don’t know what I am doing wrong

You don’t have enough backslashes. Each double-quote inside the string needs to have a backslash before it.

That is a double-quote character.

Thank you, I figured it out


When your overall string is surrounded by " ", then any double quote you want to actual appear in the string, must be escaped with the \ character. You are missing two \ characters. Also, you put a comma after I am a which is not part of the required final string in the instructions.
