The Cultural Unit has enabled me to see the strength and power that culture can have in government organisations, as well as allowing me to further develop my knowledge and understanding of Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander culture. This opportunity has truly been a substantial experience that exceeded my expectations and one that allowed me to reflect on my future career direction.

Throughout my Internship, I was also able to explore my own cultural identity which has helped me to refine my practice framework and can assist me in future practice. I took away some important learnings and transferable skills from this experience.

My time spent at CSYW gave me the opportunity to work across all teams within the organisation. Each day was different in its own right, my assigned tasks were varied, and I came across some unique experiences when working with young people and their families.

The practical experiences I’ve gained is so valuable in helping me along with my study and I’ve also met people within different organisation that have referred me so I can gain employment and also further placement opportunities. I am very grateful for the experiences I’ve had on this journey. A valuable and enriching experience for us all.
