This has been a tremendous time for me. Thank you Aurora.

The placement at AFLS continues to enrich my understanding of the struggles that Aboriginal people encounter here in Kununurra and in the Kimberley as a whole.

I have really enjoyed Susan’s company, and have learned so much from her during my internship. I am extremely grateful for the time we’ve had together, and for the opportunity.

Ruby Langton-Batty, Susan Phillips

I could not recommend this experience enough, the people at NQLC were extremely welcoming and helpful, the work was highly rewarding and it was all undertaken in an extremely beautiful part of the world.

Tyler O'Brien, NQLC

I am so grateful for this experience and for the opportunity to attend IMPACT and the National Native Title conference; it has been the highlight of the year and a seminal moment in my life. It really affirmed for me the direction I want go, and what space I want to be working in and creating change. It also showed me how much learning I have yet to do, so I’m leaving this experience even more passionate and excited!

Paris Mordecai, FYA

I’m exceptionally grateful to the Aurora Internship Program for giving me the opportunity to further my career and network.

Jenna-Maree Jacob, AIHW

I feel so grateful to be given the opportunity to have such an extraordinary experience, as I only have an administrative background of real world experience of financials and Indigenous business development and growth, and to have the opportunity to develop with my degree and utilise my skills learned from uni is a great advantage on my career development.  My experience here with the IBA team has been an “epic” adventure and has broadened my mind on indigenous engagement, development and commerce opportunities for the indigenous community as well as the small business and home ownership opportunities to the Indigenous community.

Cassandra Page, IBA

The best aspects of the internship program was being able to extend my cultural knowledge and develop a deeper understanding of the challenges faced within our remote communities. This has motivated me to get more experience in cross-cultural communication and community development work.
