I picked Andrew Jenks because he's inspiring and passionate about the world and tries to look from other people's points of views and he tries to impact their lives and change them by living with them for a week. He stays with random people every week like a MMA fighter or a man with autism also even a homeless girl just to see what it's like to live their way and to see why they live that way.

The 24-year-old filmed the lives of 12 very different individuals, immersing himself in each of their worlds. Jenks spoke to about how he was able to understand how someone like rap star Maino, who has spent time in jail and on the streets, become an inspiration to his hometown, or why a girl nicknamed Heavy D chooses to be homeless.
