Throughout my Behavioural Science and Arts undergraduate degrees at the University of Notre Dame, Fremantle, I have developed a passion and critical awareness of Indigenous Australian issues.
The choice to apply for the Aurora Internship Program is without doubt one of the most rewarding decisions I have ever made.
I heard about the Aurora Internship Program through a career fair at my university. I was already interested in Indigenous affairs through my work as a youth worker.
After graduating from the University of Melbourne with Honours in Australian Indigenous Studies I took some time off and realised two things.

During the recent summer break, I had the honour of taking part in the Aurora Internship program, offered through the Aurora Project, at the National Centre for Indigenous Studies (NCIS) at the ANU in Canberra.
