    *Best Internship in Dallas*


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     mercedes786 was inspired by her internship with Congresswoman Eddier Bernice Johnson to pursue a Master's degree in public administration. "Seeing her really care for her constituents made me think, "I want to be like that. I want to be her,"' she says.
    - jccarp, CNN iReport producer

    The best internship I ever had, was in the district office for Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson. While the internship was unpaid, the experience was priceless. I met many local political figures in the metroplex and many life-long friends in the office. I was so impressed with he love the Congresswoman had for her district and her passion for public service that I was inspired to go back to school for my Masters in Public Administration just like her!
