During the 2018/2019 summer period, I had the pleasure of completing a five-week legal internship at the Cape York Land Council (CYLC) in Cairns.
I was made aware of the Aurora Internship program through my University newsletter. As a young Aboriginal man I had felt, for some time, the desire to spend more time with Aboriginal communities and get a greater understanding of the needs and challenges different communities face.
In June-July of 2016 I undertook a 5 week Aurora internship with the North Queensland Land Council (NQLC) here in Cairns, in the final year of my anthropology major.
Aurora Internship Reflection
I was fortunate enough to spend six weeks on placement via the Aurora Internship Program at Cape York Land Council (CYLC) in sunny Cairns.
