Humans of Hofstra: Jesse Kenworthy

I deleted all my social media because I have an addictive personality. I realized I have to be addicted to the right things. Sometimes I’ll stay up all night painting a shirt and other times I’ll stay up all night, but with something unhealthy like social media. I spend too much time by myself, I need to go out and see people or FaceTime people I don’t see. I email my grandma because she doesn’t know how to FaceTime and when she calls me, all I get is a close up of her ear. I like talking to people and hearing their stories. Life is different for everybody, our experiences are what make us different. That’s why I don’t want to judge people. I don’t know what happened to them. I think generally everyone is born good; well, I don’t think they’re born good, they’re born the same. I don’t think you’re born a murderer. I think [when] you’re born it shapes you and who you are. I mean, I don’t know, social media encourages people ... I don’t like using social media as a way to get to know people. It’s superficial. It encourages you to be superficial.
