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

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

Kerry Franklin, AHCWA

I love that there are so many Koori orgs that Aurora is partnered with. Aurora makes it easy for mob (and non-Indigenous people) to become engaged in the Aboriginal sector.

Olivia Bentley, VU Moondani Balluk

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

It was an opportunity to work in a sector that I was interested in, but had no experience with. The internship allowed me to decide that native title is a field that I'd like to work in.

Shakara Liddelow-Hunt, WDLAC

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

I found my experience extremely rewarding and insightful. I once was an Aboriginal woman who knew little about the child protection space, which is concerning as it affects so many of our mob. I am now proud to say that I have been a part of an organisation that advocates to keep our Aboriginal children and young people safe and protected.

Lakkari Pitt, AbSec

My time at NAAJA has been invaluable and I have loved every minute of it. I cannot wait to come back one day!

Kassie McAlear, NAAJA

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

Overall, I enjoyed my 6-week Aurora internship at Arts Law and believe that this experience has allowed me to further develop and gain skills, which will assist with my professional development
