Hello - trying to submit my entry however having trouble meeting the word count even though all text is under or at 100 words - any advice would be great. Thanks.

Hey team,

As mentioned above, I am having the same trouble and have spent an hour trying to adjust our word count to a point that allows us to submit - to no avail.  Some answers have been reduced to 88 words.  I will send my answers directly to Vanessa in an attempt to submit this tonight. Please let me know when this coding issue is rectified.  

Kindest regards,

Renee Ventaloro
