My expectations of the internship experience were greatly exceeded. I have completed work experience multiple times in the past and was never given tasks that required responsibility and decision-making. The tasks I was delegated at Aurora were meaningful and I was often asked for my inputs and opinions when the team was making important decisions.
It has helped me grow professionally and personally. I think I have learnt a lot of valuable things that will assist me with my future studies.Gemma Pol, AEF

I was really amazed to see how TAI combines academia and culture when teaching the students. It's a wonderful methodology where one compliments the other perfectly. The commitment shown by the Elders and TAI staff is integral to TAI's success. It was inspiring and humbling to be a part of this for a short time.Shiralee Lawson, AEF

After having completed the internship, I am excited by the possibilities of what my anthropological academic background might have to offer, inspired by the possibilities for future study within anthropology, and I am certain that working within the realm of Indigenous affairs is something that I have become passionate about, and something that I would like to steer my course towards.Brianna Tuohy, AEF
I gained a lot from my Aurora internship – I further developed my research and administrative skills, reached a greater understanding of how a not-for-profit operates, and gained insight into Australia’s education system.Shayma Taweel, AEF
