can't get react native to work on first project

Have tried a few things here, updated watchman, given full folder access to watchman, get a different error message when trying with yarn, have to provide more info. Novice hobbyist here, hoping someone can help me figure this out… I’ve only started using terminal recently but basically installed everything updated everything about 2/3 times to get this to work and having difficulty. appreciate any help

fwiw, I work from a couple of different users as well, so I don’t know if that also has an impact. I get different error messages from bash and zsh.

Error: EMFILE: too many open files, watch
