What Indigenous interns say

I found the experience to be invaluable. I truly feel privileged to have been given this opportunity to work with such inspirational people doing such tremendous work for our children and community.

Breeana Parsons, AbSec

I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to work at the National Justice Project and am incredibly privileged to be working at the National Justice Project alongside a team of people committed to promoting policy changes in onshore and offshore detention centres and correctional centres. 

Carly Baque, NJP

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.

My experience at SNAICC has been eye opener for me, being a community sector worker and now seeing through difference lens of Indigenous Affairs around 'children rights' for families and communities.

Sherilee Kartinyeri, SNAICC

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

Kerry Franklin, AHCWA

I’m very proud and thankful that Aurora provided me the opportunity of the internship, it has been a highlight of my beginning baby lawyer career. 

Jessica Moody, KLC

I feel truly honoured to have had the opportunity to give back to a place that has unconditionally supported me over the past 7 years, as I know that the work I have done throughout my internship is valuable, and makes a difference to other Indigenous students. Aurora somewhat feels like a second family, and by doing this internship, and meeting more of the team, I feel like my family and support system has extended. I loved feeling part of something special and working with an incredible team that make magic happen. Aurora makes a huge difference in so many students' lives, because what you do best, above all else, is believe in and support us unconditionally.

Oceania Henry, TAI - Camps

Being a social work intern in a legal office was a valuable experience for me personally, as I enjoyed working on matters relating to tenancy and also completing projects to assist KCLS with future matters. This experience also highlighted the intersection of different practice fields and the importance of cooperation and between these fields.
