The journey to my Aurora internship started 4 years ago when I visited Perth for the Global Health Conference, run by the Australian Medical Students Association. A speaker talked about the ‘Outback Vision Van’ a new initiative to bring ophthalmology services to the people of Western Australia.

In the summer of 2018 I was fortunate enough to undertake a six-week internship placement through the Aurora Internship Program. I applied for an Aurora Internship through the social sciences stream after graduating from the University of Western Australia with a major in Archaeology.

Five weeks interning at Central Desert Native Title Services (Central Desert) provided a great insight into both the operation of native title law and the continuity of law and culture of Western Desert people.
