My internship experience exceeded all possible expectations. I deepened my knowledge of the methods for effective policy writing and I learnt of the importance and power of collaboration in order to achieve successful advocacy efforts. Yet, above all, what I gained from this internship that is most significant is an experience in the life of a policy officer in the Indigenous sector.

I new that this was going to be a beneficial experience, but the deeper I get into the work, the more I realize it will probably be an indispensable one as well, in terms of preparing me for my future career.

I really believe that the  program I worked on will play a pivotal role in strengthening these organisations and communities, giving them a better chance at sustainable self-determination into the future, and I feel privileged to have been able to play a small part in that.

My knowledge of Indigenous affairs increased exponentially, this is one of the most valuable and interesting experiences that I've ever had and I would highly recommend it.

I’m glad that I applied for this internship, because it was an opportunity not only to hone my career aspirations, but to learn about myself.

This experience has strongly ignited a passion for Indigenous rights that has long been lingering and has confirmed my direction in my studies and career.  It offers you an unparalleled opportunity to learn from and work beside passionate and inspiring advocates and experts within the field, to develop professional skills, meet like-minded people and develop networks.

I have walked away from this 7-week internship with a better understanding of processes of collaboration and the diplomacy required to achieve them effectively, as well as policy processes and how these can be influenced through effective advocacy efforts.

I would recommend an Aurora internship to anyone with an interest in public interest law and Indigenous affairs wanting to supplement classroom learning with practical experience
