hey all, I feel like I’m close with my code but struggling to find out where I’m going wrong. Input greatly appreciated!

// Setup
const contacts = [
  firstName: "Akira",
  lastName: "Laine",
  number: "0543236543",

  likes: ["JavaScript", "Gaming", "Foxes"],

function lookUpProfile(name, prop) {
// Only change code below this line
for (var i = 0; i < contacts.length; i++) {
if (contacts[i].firstName === name) {
  if (contacts[i].hasOwnProperty(prop)) {
    return contacts[i][prop];
  } else { 
    return "no such property";

return "no such contact"; 

// Only change code above this line

lookUpProfile("Akira", "likes");
