While studying at USC Kaufman, Wilkerson also completed a minor in political science, finding ways to weave her dancing narrative into today’s political questions. In defying the inequality that bound many black ballerinas before her, Wilkerson dreams of becoming the realization of the 21st century ballerina. She is currently dancing with Ballet Hispánico on their 2019-20 tour.

“I hope to reflect anomalous passion for movement and artistic endeavors seemingly opposed to my physical makeup,” she said.
