I am a final year Arts/Law student. I interned at the North Queensland Land Council in Cairns. This is my story. What I enjoyed most about the legal work at NQLC was that it invariably bled into the organisation's other roles as law reform advocates, community liaisons, anthropologists and more.

I graduated from QUT at the end of 2012, and was finishing up my PLT studies during 2012 when I initially heard about the Aurora Native Title Internship Program from a friend.

As a 3rd year Anthropology and Sociology student, I could not pass up the opportunity to learn more about the relationships between the Federal and State governments and the ongoing battle for recognition and protection of the cultural heritage of Indigenous Australians.
