This month we celebrate the accomplishments of Adoniyah Ben-Tsalmiel. Adoniyah has been a KCC camper since age 7 when the camp first began in 2010. He is the youngest of three brothers who have all been homeschooled since birth. Adoniyah was a hit at KCC’s Festival Fridays with his rap performances as part of the 10-12 class presentations. He attended KCC until he turned 13 and then became a camp counselor in training (CIT). As an older teen, Adoniyah took his experiences as a camper and CIT at KCC and went on to serve at another camp in Washington, DC, as a junior counselor, counselor, and most recently a STEM Program Leader.

Adoniyah is making a name for himself in the areas of music and art. He is a rapper, songwriter, and music producer, who launched his own media venture, TsalMedia, LLC earlier this year. A talented artist in his own right, Adoniyah also teaches a comics art class to students through the Sankofa Homeschool Collective. The class, The Black Ink in Comics, highlights comic book writers and illustrators of color bringing more awareness to aspiring young authors.
