My time as an Aurora intern at the GBK Sea and Land Council on Thursday Island was, in many ways, a great honour.
During the summer break of 2020, I completed a 4-week Commonwealth funded Aurora internship at Bangarra Dance Theatre.
I am extremely grateful to have spent February this year interning in a research role under the Sydney Olympic Park Authority (SOPA).
I am a recent graduate of a Bachelor of Youth Work with an interest in working within Education/Recreation field alongside Australia’s First Peoples.
In early-ish 2019 I was walking quite fast past classrooms on the way to my next Uni lecture when I caught a glimpse of a poster in one of the busy courtyards.
When I applied for the Aurora Internship Program, I was in a strange place coming back from a year abroad in London, re-acculturating myself to Melbourne in the final semester of my undergraduate Arts degree majoring in Anthropology and History, unsure about what I wanted to do next.
