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.

Coming in to the internship with AIDA as an undergraduate student without any professional workplace experience, I was unsure what to expect.

As I sit down to write this report about my experiences as a participant in the Summer 2017 Aurora Internship program, I realise that I am proud of the year that has been and am excited and grateful for the opportunities that 2018 presents.

For many people, Aurora internships are about travelling to a new place and gaining firsthand experience in the field. For me it was a way to enter an unknown field of research and begin to understand the fundamentals of Aboriginal affairs.
