"I love people sometimes."

He told BuzzFeed News that during his graduation on Friday, he took some photos with his friend and attempted to send him the resulting pics. "I just put one number in the wrong place," Campbell said.

So instead of sending the photos to his friend, he sent them to a real estate agent named Roger Hawkins from Columbia, South Carolina. Here he is with one of his three children, 4-year-old Genevieve.

"I was on the way home, and I got a text message from an unknown number, and it was a couple of guys in graduation clothes," Hawkins told BuzzFeed News.

The dad did NOT just respond "wrong number." Instead, he sent Campbell an effusive selfie, an encouraging message, and a link to motivational speeches.

Campbell called the whole thing "funny," and said he especially appreciated the link. "The link was, like, the icing on the cake," he said.

The graduate has listened to "a few" of them. "It's a good link — it really is." The text exchange left a positive impression with him. "This is really a good dude," he said. "That's the vibe I get from him."


Hawkins said that Campbell mistakenly published his phone number and now a "significant" amount of people are contacting him. Luckily, he's not bothered by it. "I'm a pretty easygoing guy," he explained.

He's even sending ~good vibes~ to more graduates. "There's a part of me that really wants to be encouraging to young people — or to anybody that's working hard to get somewhere against the odds," Hawkins said.

Hawkins said that he's confident the pair will keep in touch. "How could you not, you know?" he said. "I would love to, like, see what he does."

"He's a good guy," the graduate said. "I'm open to hitting him up every now and then to see how he's doing."
