Putting historical research into practice: My Aurora internship at AIATSIS
Having recently graduated from a Bachelor of Arts in anthropology, I was interested in doing an Aurora internship to broaden my understanding of the Indigenous sector and to gain practical research skills.
Originally from the Torres Strait, I moved to Brisbane a couple of years ago to attend university to become a Social Worker. I study at the Australian Catholic University (ACU) and am currently in my third year with one more year left to go.
Coming in to the internship with AIDA as an undergraduate student without any professional workplace experience, I was unsure what to expect.
