You will have a much better lens. The optical quality of the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM is much better than your kit lens. There will be next to zero geometric aberration (straight lines come out as curved with the 18-55), excellent low-light performance, and a much shallower depth of field (a much blurrier background to help your foreground stand out). Both the latter come from the faster lens – f/1.8 vs f/3.5, a full 2 stops.
