Nog is the one who immediately leaps to mind. He started as a punk Ferengi kid and ended up a respected Starfleet senior engineer. Not too shabby.
One of the most underrated subplots of Star Trek. It's easy to see how someone like Kirk or Spock could make it in Starfleet. But Nog? He was thrown in jail during the series pilot because he was involved in a theft. That Sisko gave him a chance to prove himself resonates powerfully with anyone who believes that they needed only the chance to be successful in order for it to happen.
