What Indigenous interns say

The most rewarding aspect of my internships was learning new skills and being exposed to experienced professionals and possible job opportunities.

Hope Saba, First Peoples Health Unit

I have really enjoyed my internship with ASLWA working in family law unit. The experience was definitely beneficial to my future career aspirations.

Fiona Middleton-Gala, ALSWA

The Aurora Internship Program has been a fantastic introduction to full time research and I am honoured to be an Aurora alumni member.

Barbara Bynder, NULUNGU

It has been one of the most rewarding and uplifting experiences I have encountered, the culture and inspiration I have gained from being here has been immense.

Taylor McLean, St John Ambulance

The best aspect of the Program is the fact that it is funded for indigenous students - definitely would not have been able to participate without that.

Emma St Clair, ALRC

I could not be any more stoked on the experiences and knowledge I was privileged of gaining over summer. The Aurora program internships are absolutely fantastic! A very rewarding, and educational experience!

Brielle Long, Chatham

This experience has had a significant impact on myself by strengthening my passions to give back to community, to foster the excellence of our young people, and to be active in the development of our future leaders and change makers. It was also a really enriching experience personally as I was able to come to a greater sense of my Indigeneity through knowledge-sharing with the students.

Paris Mordecai, FYA

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

Kerry Franklin, AHCWA

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.

Stacey Rankin, WEHI

The Cultural Unit has enabled me to see the strength and power that culture can have in government organisations, as well as allowing me to further develop my knowledge and understanding of Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander culture. This opportunity has truly been a substantial experience that exceeded my expectations and one that allowed me to reflect on my future career direction.
