Hey Raziel Martinez , you donโ€™t need to access the index of a list, per se, but rather that a str object is similar to a list in that you may access each letter as if it were an item in a list. So the first letter of a string is at index 0. This would be written as string[0].

Next, add a filter to eliminate continents not beginning with โ€œAโ€ (an if statement may help here).

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!
