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

  **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: "Kristian",
  lastName: "Vos",
  number: "unknown",
  likes: ["JavaScript", "Gaming", "Foxes"],

Challenge: Profile Lookup

Link to the challenge:

for (let i = 0; i < contacts.length; i++) {

    if (name === contacts[i].firstName) {

      if (contacts[i].hasOwnProperty(prop)) {

        return contacts[i][prop];

      } else {

        return "No such property";



    return "No such contact";


where is the mistake coming from

Your code will only ever look at the first item in the contacts list. Remember that when your code hits a return, the function is done running.
