During the penultimate semester of my Bachelor of Arts I applied for an Aurora Internship. Throughout my degree I had majored in Gender Studies and Australian Indigenous Studies. Therefore, I had always been interested in the possibility of working in the Native Title sector.

After completing a legal unit on comparative Indigenous rights early in 2017, I was eager to learn more about how the law regarding native title functioned in Victoria. The Aurora internship gave me the perfect opportunity to follow this interest.

To complement my Bachelor of Arts Degree, I thought that it would useful to gain some  work experience. I have always been interested in Indigenous affairs, so the Aurora Internship Program was an obvious choice for me.
