For 6 weeks in November/December of 2018 I had the pleasure of being placed with the National Native Title Tribunal at the Brisbane office, as part of an internship program through Aurora. As an Indigenous applicant I also received an Indigenous Commonwealth Scholarship.

I gained interest in Indigenous affairs in my first year at university when I studied Intercultural Communication. I had very little exposure and understanding in regards to the Indigenous sector as I had just moved to Australia as an international student.

 As I peered with excitement out of the aeroplane window, laying my eyes for the first time on Australia’s west coast, I felt immensely privileged to have been placed in Broome.

It took me six years to get through my bachelor degree in Ecology, meandering through just about all departments and labs available at the University campus and delayed even further by exchange programs overseas.

While completing my Law and International Development degrees I always wanted to do an Aurora internship and it was once I graduated that I found the time. I did my internship with Native Title Services Victoria (NTSV).

Undertaking an Aurora Internship Program placement with South Australia Native Title Services (SANTS) has definitely been one of the highlights of my tertiary studies.

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.
