Success begets success and opportunity begets opportunity. This principle is something that the author sees at work in his own life. One example of opportunities begetting opportunities is the experience he had at the Academy of Science and Technology to practice his programming skills. The Academy served as a great training ground for what would eventually become his major area of study and employment. At the Academy, he was provided with a sound foundational education in computer programming, and then he was allowed the freedom to explore programming. One example of success begetting success comes from his experience at the International Science and Engineering Fair, where he took first place in the Biotechnology division. He could never have succeeded here had it not been for the training and mentoring he received at the Academy. Winning the science fair enabled him to work on an impressive research project team during his undergraduate years, which led to several research co-publications. These publications, in turn, provided him with several exciting job offers.
