Location: Washington, DC

On Saturday, Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson spoke to a group of young women from the Dallas area at an educational seminar sponsored by the Dallas Chapter of the Links, encouraging them to pursue careers in the science, technology, engineering, & math (STEM) fields.

"Don't let anyone discourage you or tell you that you can't compete and perform in the hard sciences," said Congresswoman Johnson. "You are preparing yourselves for your future, which is critically important. Focus on your education and you will be successful."

Congresswoman Johnson continued, "I applaud the Links for taking time to work with young people in such a vital field. These young people are the future. Let me stress how important it is to take advantage of the opportunities that are being presented to you. I am a Member of Congress, and I haven't done anything that you can't do."

Throughout the course of the day, the girls were mentored by University of Texas at Dallas educators, graduate students, PhD candidates and STEM professionals. They conducted supervised science experiments and received guidance and advice from the speakers.

The Links, a national women's service organization, recently appointed Congresswoman Johnson to be chair of the National STEM Career Readiness Initiative for the organization.
