Being in a remote community is yet to be one of the biggest challenges I have accomplished throughout my studies. I was challenged mentally and emotionally, whilst learning about the challenges faced within the community, both past and present, as well as gaining an understanding of the socio-cultural issues that are evident in the community. By completing my internship at the Wadeye Safe House, I have been able to continue developing my personal toolkit in which I look forward to using once completing studies.

The best aspects of the internship program was being able to extend my cultural knowledge and develop a deeper understanding of the challenges faced within our remote communities. This has motivated me to get more experience in cross-cultural communication and community development work.

The most rewarding part of my internship was getting the opportunity to be challenged in my thinking and practice around engaging respectfully with indigenous people.​

Being immersed in the culture is a truly unique experience, and is completely different to simply reading about the community. Every minute is a learning experience
