The Power of While Loops

Use a while loop to complete the function feel_the_power so that it takes the initial_number and multiplies it by itself power number of times.

Examples:

>>> feel_the_power(3, 0)
1

>>> feel_the_power(3, 1)
3

>>> feel_the_power(3, 2)
9

>>> feel_the_power(3, 3)
27

Hint: You'll need additional variables to keep track of both the result and how many times you've multiplied it by itself.

Hint 2: Remember, with multiplication, you start your result at 1 instead of 0 because if you multiply by 0 you get 0.

Hint 3: NO INFINITE LOOPS!
