    Instructor: Let me just add a user component. This is going to say "Hello," because I don't have the username yet. I'm going to say "Hello" and I'm going to close this H1 and then we're going to see how we can add this parameter.

    Let me do the same thing I have in here. I want to say "user." The path of this is going to be users/username. Let me add a link that is going to go to users/sarah, and this is Sarah. If I do this now, this one's going to say "Hello." To get the props here, I can say props and then I can say props.username.

    If I do this it now says "Hello Sarah." This is how you can add URL parameters using Reach Router.
