  var users = [
    { firstName: "John", lastName: "Doe", age: 28, gender: "male" },
    { firstName: "Jane", lastName: "Doe", age: 5, gender: "female" },
    { firstName: "Jim", lastName: "Carrey", age: 54, gender: "male" },
    { firstName: "Kate", lastName: "Winslet", age: 40, gender: "female" }

  var user = _.find(users, { lastName: "Doe", gender: "male" });
  // user -> { firstName: "John", lastName: "Doe", age: 28, gender: "male" }

  var underAgeUser = _.find(users, function(user) {
   return user.age < 18;
The above HTML prints below output on the console:
{firstName: "John", lastName: "Doe", age: 28, gender: "male"}
{firstName: "Jane", lastName: "Doe", age: 5, gender: "female"}
