During the course of completing a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Australian Indigenous Studies I heard about the Aurora Internship program. Upon finishing my degree it made sense to use my knowledge and gain practical experience in the Indigenous sector through an Aurora internship.

After completing an undergraduate Arts degree in 2011, the Aurora Native Title Internship Program provided a gateway to live and work in the remote NT community of Wadeye for 6 months. There I worked in the Safe House and lived with the crèche manager who was employed by the same service (CSSU).
