Khadim Diop

On August 18, 1997 in Harlem Hospital (premature) kicking and screaming a star was born. At the age of 5 years old he stated aspirations of making a difference in the world.

He has been attending the Learning Tree since 2000 where he has performed in their annual plays. He found his love for the stage while performing "The Black Man" (Anonymous) in 2005 and has also performed in "Gulla" in 2008 and was so good that he was asked to be in it again in 2009. He is also an excellent artist and has been drawing and collecting his illustrations since age 5.

Khadim does all of this despite the fact that his father does not support any of his artistic endeavor. Khadim joined IMPACT at the age of 11 in July 2009 where he has quickly risen as a star performer. Since his audition he has excelled as a dramatic spoken word performer a well as a developing rapper and hype man.

Khadim is an inspiration to all and will continue to make his IMPACT on the world.
