ACKNOWLDGEMENT

As I move on and continue my journey in my college life I always remember this qoute “ No man is an island“. I believe that the beauty of my dreams would never be attain without the help of every individual that I’ve met. I’ve done and went through many struggles and without the help of my friends I could not overcome those. As I explore the world of research, I encountered so many challenges. At first glance these may seem to be difficult for me especially choosing the right and the best title and where to find those references to be used, but I take it as a challenge because I know I can do this. First and foremost, there is a loving GOD who will always guide and help us at all times and only prayers are needed to communicate with Him. Second to my family, especially to my parents who provide me a very essential financial support for sending me to school to a higher level for the sacrifices and hard working they did just for sending me to school. And especially to our English teacher Mrs. Anastacia Solamo who guided us to make this research and also to our instructors, thank you very much. To my classmates who are always there to for me whenever I’m confused in our technical writing, thank you very much.
