As a result, I wish to give thanks for everything that happens to me knowing that every step forward is accepting something bigger and better than my current situation. Firstly I must say thanks to the respondents who cooperated by completing the questionnaires so data can be gathered, collected and presented. Secondly I must say thanks to the almighty God for giving me the health and strength as I preserve the task of completing this S.B.A. I want to thank God for giving me the supportive friends who contributed in special ways.
