ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

First and foremost, praises and thanks to the God, the Almighty, for this shower of
blessings throughout our research work to complete the research successfully.

We would like to express our deep and sincere gratitude to our Practical Research
teacher, Ms. Mary Jane S. Galanida, for giving us the opportunity to do research and
providing invaluable guidance throughout this study. Her dynamism, vision, sincerity and
motivation have deeply inspired us. She had taught us the methodology to carry out the
research and to present the research works as clearly as possible. It was a great privilege
and honor to work and study under her guidance. We are extremely grateful for what she
has offered to us. We would like also to thank for her friendship, empathy, and great sense
of humor.

We would like also to thank our panels, Mrs. Ma. Theressa P. Torres and Sir
Jasper Alburo who give us suggestions to improve our research and to make our study
better. To our statistician, Sir Kenneth Emannuel Jamerlan who were involved for this
study. Without his passionate participation and input, the survey could not have been
successfully conducted and the result could not have been successfully interpreted.

We would like also to thank our friends for helping us and sharing their knowledge
throughout this research and for inspiring us to make this research successfully.

Finally, I must express our very profound gratitude to our parents and to our friends
for providing us with unfailing support and continuous encouragement throughout the
study and through the process of researching and writing this thesis. This
accomplishment would not have been possible without them. Thank you.
