Meanwhile, before she started playing volleyball, Kynnedy attended Anthony Aguirre Junior High and was a track and field athlete there.

Being the immediate younger sibling of Jalen Hurts, Kynnedy shares a very close relationship with him. Speaking in an interview, Jalen once described Kynnedy as the smartest of his siblings, saying he has watched her put in an endless amount of work into her sport.

Also, during an interview with GQ in April 2021, Jalen talked about various things he has already done with his money and how he also plans to spend it in the future. Apart from charity, he mentioned that he has already set aside $70,000 for his sister, Kynnedy Hurts, to go to college. According to him, he had not talked to anyone about it at the time, not even his sister or their parents. “Just in case she needs it I have $70,000 set aside for her to go to college,” he said.
