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.
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.
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.
