During the penultimate semester of my Bachelor of Arts I applied for an Aurora Internship. Throughout my degree I had majored in Gender Studies and Australian Indigenous Studies. Therefore, I had always been interested in the possibility of working in the Native Title sector.

My background undergraduate degree was a Bachelor of Business in Economics and Finance. I am currently completing a Doctor of Medicine. The Aurora Internship Program was an opportunity for me to connect with and gain more exposure to the Indigenous sector.
