Trying to solve the "Profile Lookup"

I know I am one of those beginners without any prior experience in computer science. I am just trying to see what it is I am not getting right in this code I have written. I am grateful for your help.

We have an array of objects representing different people in our contacts lists.

A lookUpProfile function that takes name and a property ( prop ) as arguments has been pre-written for you.

The function should check if name is an actual contact’s firstName and the given property ( prop ) is a property of that contact.

If both are true, then return the “value” of that property.

If name does not correspond to any contacts then return the string No such contact .

If prop does not correspond to any valid properties of a contact found to match name then return the string No such property .

// 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
// My code so far

for( let i=0; i < contacts.length; i++){
    if((name===contacts.firstName) {
if (contacts.hasOwnProperty(prop))){
        return contacts[i][prop];
    } else {
        return "No such property";
} return "No such contact";

// Only change code above this line

lookUpProfile("Akira", "likes");
