            <img src={journal.image} />


Here is a screenshot of the journal entry element that I am trying to makeHere is a screenshot of the code that I used to make the journal entry element

I am working on a single page react app and have made a module for making journal entries. The module has a component called Journal. I have a variable which uses the Image constructor to make a new image element, then I assign a value for its src attribute which is equal to an image file path located within my project’s assets. After creating the image variable I have made an object for a journal entry. It has properties for title, image, and text. The return statement has jsx which makes a journal entry. The title and text values from the object are appearing on the webpage but I am having difficulty with the img element working to display the image on the webpage. Currently it is showing the broken img icon. I just copied and pasted the img into the value for the myImg variable’s src attribute. Can someone help me find how to display the image? Thanks.
