I applied to the Aurora Native Title Internship Program hoping to get placed with an organisation that could provide a medium to link my energy law studies with the native title laws.
During the course of completing a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Australian Indigenous Studies I heard about the Aurora Internship program. Upon finishing my degree it made sense to use my knowledge and gain practical experience in the Indigenous sector through an Aurora internship.
The Aurora internship was an amazing experience. I knew little about native title before going into the internship and have finished with an understanding of corporate social responsibility, native title, Future Acts, heritage planning and all the politics involved with Aboriginal Corporations.
In November 2013, I was given the amazing opportunity by The Aurora Project to undertake a Native Title Internship at the National Native Tile Council (‘NNTC’) in Melbourne.
In June and July 2010, I undertook an Aurora native title internship at the National Native Title Council (‘NNTC’) in Melbourne. NNTC is a relatively new peak policy body that represents the views and positions of most of the Native Title Representative Bodies in Australia.

I have always been interested in the rights and affairs of marginalised groups in developing and developed countries and through my course in Development Studies I took an interest in the complex field of native title within the country.
