During the winter of 2018, I completed a 4 week Aurora internship in the legal branch at the Northern Land Council (NLC) in Darwin, Northern Territory. I was fortunate to be funded by Gilbert and Tobin during my internship.

From June to July 2018, I had the wonderful opportunity of interning with The North Australian Indigenous Land and Sea Management Alliance (NAILSMA) in Darwin, through the Aurora Internship Program.

I am originally from Darwin, so I already planned on going back for the summer break. I thought that these holidays would be the perfect opportunity to gain some work experience as I had just finished my first year of postgraduate law.

During my final semester of studies at university I discovered the Aurora Internship program, the perfect exposure to the workforce with an Indigenous organisation and the opportunity to live in a different part of Australia.
