Thank you so much for your encouragement and guidance during the preparation of this document. I would also like to thank all those who helped me successfully arrive at this destination. To all my professors who have forever changed my outlook on the world. To my wonderful friends and relatives who put up with me through all the stress and lack of free time. To my amazing classmates who made it all so much fun. To my parents who affected me, taught me, advised me and always believed in me. To my husband and friend who not only gave me all the love in the world and made this chapter in my life possible, but who also taught me that “everything always happens for the best”. I could not hope for a more comforting belief. I dedicate this thesis to my sons Lawrence and Alan. I hope that my journey continues to inspire you in your endeavors. You are both with me in everything that I do.
