Challenge: Create a Model

Link to the challenge:

UPDATE: Solved it by adding quotation marks on mySecret.

went from this =>
mongoose.connect(mySecret, { useNewUrlParser: true, useUnifiedTopology: true });

to this =>
mongoose.connect(‘mySecret’, { useNewUrlParser: true, useUnifiedTopology: true });

so simple :')
Keeping this incase someone goes though it like

mySecret is a variable, not a string.
