Thanks!!!

Your code so far

//Setup
var 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(firstName, prop){
// Only change code below this line
 for (var prop1 in contacts) {
     if (firstName == contacts.firstName) {
       return contacts[firstName];
     } else {
       return "No such contact";
     }
    
   
 }
// Only change code above this line
}

// Change these values to test your function
lookUpProfile("Akira", "likes");

You need to think about your algorithm some more. Remember, contacts is an array of objects. contacts is an array and not an object. It does not have a firstName property. However, each object element of contacts does have a firstName property, so the following will if statement will always evaluate to false

if (firstName == contacts.firstName) {

Think about how you would access a specific contact during each iteration of the a for loop.

FYI - Keep in mind as you work on this challenge, when you use the return statement, the function exits and does not continue iterating through the for loop.
