Profile Lookup - can't pass the first three tasks

Tell us what’s happening:

Your code so far

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

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

Link to the challenge:

lookUpProfile("Akira", "likes") runs ok, but I failed when testing other names.

As you have a chain of if/else if/else one of those will execute when i is 0 and the function returns something, and stop running so your code never arrives to check the other objects in the array (other contacts)

Thanks! I passed it.
