Profile Lookup in Basic JavaScript : function lookUpProfile

I am giving the conditions to check if the “firstname” is the name parameter of the function lookUpProfile and then checking if the property parameter is a property of the objects. However, I am not able to figure out where it’s not a correct logic.

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

// Only change code above this line


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

firstname is not the same as firstName.
