To finish off my undergraduate degree, I decided to undertake an internship with the Aurora Internship Program over the summer holidays.
I decided to apply for an Aurora internship in the final semester of my Bachelor of Arts, in which I took an extended major in anthropology. At that point in my degree, getting a taste of ‘real life anthropology’ was exactly what I wanted and also felt I needed to do.
From June to July 2018, I had the wonderful opportunity of interning with The North Australian Indigenous Land and Sea Management Alliance (NAILSMA) in Darwin, through the Aurora Internship Program.
When I received a confirmation email about my Aurora winter 2018 internship placement I was overwhelmed as I didn’t believe I would be awarded anything as a second-year nursing student.
As part of The Aurora Internship Program, I had the opportunity for a placement with the Dja Dja Wurrung Enterprises (or Djandak) in Bendigo.
“Defending the environment and advancing the law” reads the motto emblazoned at the entrance of the Environment Defenders Office of New South Wales (EDONSW) in Clarence Street, Sydney.
Over the summer, I was given the incredible opportunity to undertake a 4-week Aurora placement at Dja Dja Wurrung Enterprises (DDW) in Bendigo, as part of the Aurora Internship Program.
