What Indigenous interns say

Overall, I have thoroughly enjoyed my six-week placement at Arts Law, and feel as though I have learnt so much which will assist my professional development. I also feel grateful to have had the opportunity to work with such an amazing organisation and group of individuals. 

Sharna White, ALCA

The Aurora Internship Program I feel ensures Indigenous organisations from around Australia can access help and support in a professional and meaningful way of capacity building regional and urban areas while also providing significant lifetime experiences for undergraduate and post graduate students.

I have really enjoyed my time and all the people I have met and I hope to one day work with them in the future.

The most rewarding aspects of my placement was gaining hands-on experience of what the real world in the medical research sector will be like and how important and the amazing work people are achieving.

For anyone interested in food security, nutrition, international development or Indigenous affairs, I strongly encourage you to apply for an internship with Food Ladder.

When I graduate at the end of 2019 my goal is to be doing my honours at WEHI. This is something I had never thought about, so the last 5 weeks has changed my life. The advice I have gained will have a forever lasting effect on me.
