What Indigenous interns say

Overall I feel very lucky to be involved in the Aurora Internship Program and am glad that I have been able to make a contribution to Food Ladder. 

Faith Considine, Food Ladder

I’ve had such a good time learning the practice of native title first hand. It has really solidified the concepts and has been interesting to see how they work in practice. It’s definitely been the best work experience I have been involved in at uni and has made me really keen to practice native title in my career.

This internship opened my eyes to the increasing opportunities and different pathways available to me for my future.

I have had a positive experience at FYA and felt that I have developed professionally and am beyond grateful for the opportunity.

Harriet de Souza, FYA

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.

Rachel Hall, OTCS

I had a great experience and couldn't recommend it enough.  The most rewarding aspects were getting the opportunity to work with mob and give back to the community, as well as getting to use new skills and knowledge.  I ended up learning so much I never thought I could get a hang of.

For anyone interested in food security, nutrition, international development or Indigenous affairs, I strongly encourage you to apply for an internship with Food Ladder.

I have really enjoyed and learnt a lot whilst on placement at VACCHO, throughout my placement I was exposed to various learning experiences and opportunities, which provided me with greater knowledge, motivation and inspiration when it comes to health policy and Indigenous affairs.

My time and experience here at SNAICC has really opened my eyes to what goes on behind the scenes for our kids, and how important non-for-profit organisations are for the improved future of Aboriginal and or Torres Strait Islander children going through child protection and family services.

When I graduate at the end of 2019 my goal is to be doing my honours at WEHI. This is something I had never thought about, so the last 5 weeks has changed my life. The advice I have gained will have a forever lasting effect on me.
