Example:

Since as a little kid, I had passion about ...

Is this acceptable to say as opposed to:

Ever since I was a little kid, ...

or

Since I was a little kid, ...

Is It possible to write this without 'I '?

Because the context ( CV ) is about me and I think writing I was is a little redundant. Plus, the graphic design of the paper requires less used space.

Or is this completely wrong and has a fundamental grammatical error?

    You can say since childhood. You can not say "since as a child". – Dan Bron Sep 22 '15 at 13:54
  • @DanBron Thanks! It could've taken me days to figure that out. – Muhamed Krlić Sep 22 '15 at 14:18

Since as a little kid, I had passion about ...

This is not an acceptable alternative to the phrasings below it. It might be a valid usage if by "since" you mean "because" and what follows describes the consequence of your childhood passion.

Ever since I was a little kid, ...

or

Since I was a little kid, ...

Is It possible to write this without 'I'?

Assuming you leave the rest of the words, no.

Because the context is about me and I think writing I was is a little redundant. Plus, the graphic design of the paper requires less used space.

Dan Bron's suggestion "Since childhood" might be a good choice, or even more concisely you could put an adjective (e.g. "longtime," "lifetime" or "childhood") on "passion" and make "passion" the subject of its clause ("lifetime passion for...")
