So true story, this is an idea I have had ever since a very special night at The Kimmel Center. I was doing my usual monthly hosting and on this night the young jazz orchestra performed and I was floored! It was about 10 boys from the ages of 13-17 and they repped ALL colors!! So the next morning I came into work thinking we should give love to all the DopeKids like the ones in this orchestra. And when I tell yall I was amazed by the calls I received! My call to action was, “Call up and shout out the DopeKid in your life Doing Dope Things!”. Some of the calls I got went from one kid who started a stuttering support group and hes only 12, to another kid that started a running group and one who started a rock band! Just DOPE KIDS! So I thought to myself, this should be a movement! But before I could start the movement I needed a logo. I wanted a logo for DopeKids made by a DopeKid! So I reached out to my good friend Aisha Winfield from this Dope program for kids called Jr. Music Exec! And here is her nomination for the 1st Dope Kid, Dash aka @!
