The journey to my Aurora internship started 4 years ago when I visited Perth for the Global Health Conference, run by the Australian Medical Students Association. A speaker talked about the ‘Outback Vision Van’ a new initiative to bring ophthalmology services to the people of Western Australia.

In the summer of 2018 I was fortunate enough to undertake a six-week internship placement through the Aurora Internship Program. I applied for an Aurora Internship through the social sciences stream after graduating from the University of Western Australia with a major in Archaeology.

In February-March of 2019, I undertook a legal internship with Cross Country Native Title Services through the Aurora Internship Program. The Aurora Project allows students and graduates the opportunity to work within organisations that focus on native title.

I decided at the start of this year that I would become more proactive in my own individual development. For the past few years as a uni student, I had watched as others were given great opportunities and promoted the various organisations that they had been involved with.
