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.

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.
