Why am I unable to change the color of the font of my navbar on the top of the center of my webpage?

I did color: white; in the css section for the navbar but the font does not show up white. Why is that and how should I fix this issue?

You are targetting the nav element when you should be targetting the a elements inside it.
try with something like nav a {color: white} and see if that works!

Also I would advice to use your id tag instead of the general nav tag, which would change all your nav tags incase you would have more.
#navbar a { color: #fff }
