After completing an undergraduate Arts degree in 2011, the Aurora Native Title Internship Program provided a gateway to live and work in the remote NT community of Wadeye for 6 months. There I worked in the Safe House and lived with the crèche manager who was employed by the same service (CSSU).

My underlying drivers are to make a meaningful contribution to my community and positively impact those around me.
My Aurora internship at the Secretariat of Aboriginal and Islander Childcare (SNAICC) in Melbourne followed hot on the heels of my first Aurora internship at the Aboriginal Legal Service (ALS) in Sydney at the start of the year.
My background undergraduate degree was a Bachelor of Business in Economics and Finance. I am currently completing a Doctor of Medicine. The Aurora Internship Program was an opportunity for me to connect with and gain more exposure to the Indigenous sector.
