I had just made the decision to transition from part-time study to full-time to focus on completing my undergraduate degree when I stumbled across an email requesting applications for the Aurora Internship Program.
After completing my Bachelor’s degree, I had a break before I began post graduate study and was eager to broaden my skillset.
Nervous and exited in equal measure, I began my internship via the Aurora Internship Program at the Aurora Education Foundation in mid-November. I was greeted by all of the staff and immediately felt comfortable, included and welcome.
My journey to undertake my Aurora internship with the Aurora Education Foundation (AEF) in Sydney was a whirlwind adventure. Within a few days of completing my last assignment of my undergraduate degree, I had packed up the car and was leaving Melbourne winter behind.
It is difficult to capture my experience via the Aurora Internship Program at the Aurora Education Foundation (AEF) in such brief words, because it was truly eventful.
Like many university students studying within law, anthropology and the social sciences, I applied for the Aurora Internship Program, for the summer 2016/17 round.
Life can certainly throw out some challenges and make you grateful for the small differences people can make in your life.
I came into my internship with the Aurora Education Foundation (AEF) not knowing what to expect. Having had little experience beyond the retail sector and some volunteer work in the social justice space prior to my placement, I simply knew I was in for a great deal of learning.
