We would like to thank the editorial staff at Cognella Academic Publishing who have made this project a reality. A special thanks to Laura Pasquale, Gem Rabanera, Charlotte Morris, and Berenice Quirino for their helpful publishing and editorial skills and for their commitment to giving “voice” to the contributors. We would also like to thank both Jess Estrella and Dani Skeen who patiently collaborated with us in creating the book’s cover and in the marketing of the book. We are very grateful for the empowering and collaborative experience we have had throughout the writing of this book.
