Brandie Wilkerson is the current women’s World Beach Volleyball Silver Medalist and also the first and only black woman to ever represent Canada at the Olympics for Beach Volleyball. She made her Olympic debut at the 2020 Tokyo Games and left with an impressive Top Five performance, out of 24 teams.  Brandie also competes on the famed AVP circuit in the US and won “Best Blocker” during the 2022 end-of-season awards.  A true MVP in everything she touches, Brandie is the optimal whirlwind of world-class-athlete-meets-influencer with her broad range of highly engaged lifestyle content. In Canada, she is a leading voice for Gen Z & Millennials on racial and gender equality with her newly launched "Project Worthy”.  With the goal to increase representation in the sport she loves, Brandie created this scholarship to cover one year of club volleyball fees for up-and-coming Canadian BIPOC athletes.
