To get the first character of a string we can use the charAt() method in JavaScript.

The first index of a string is 0.

const str = "helicopter";

const firstCharacter = str.charAt(0);

console.log(firstCharacter); // "h"

Similarly, we can use square brackets [] syntax to get the first character of a string.

const str = "helicopter";

const firstCharacter = str[0];

console.log(firstCharacter); // "h"
