Katie Wilford, Global Scholar
Katie Wilford is an Iowa native in the land Down Under who just completed her Master of Education at the University of Melbourne. Her research explored the embedded intentions regarding Koorie peoples in Victorian education documents. After submitting her research paper, she ventured off to holiday in Perth (and down the coast) for two weeks. She currently spends her time volunteering at DIK and Missionaries of Charity, providing free mathematics tutoring at Epping Secondary, visiting and presenting at Rotary clubs across the district, and crossing off those last minute adventures in Melbourne before returning home. Katie has one more trip planned in late July, to Uluru, which crosses off visiting all six states! 
Melbourne has been Katie’s home for the past year and when asked about going “home” she often says, “I’m not done with Melbourne yet!” 
As a Rotary Global Scholar, she is an investment of Rotary with the drive to fulfil three big dreams: to teach, to feed, and to help.
