PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Walking into the CBS Broadcast Center, Franklin is dressed to impress.
He describes his outfit: “I’m wearing a nice dress shirt, white pants and brown shoes.”
This 18-year-old says making a good first impression is important. And his outfit needs to be just right.
He says, “I like to match my clothes to my shoes.”
Franklin loves sports — especially football. But he really sparkles in the kitchen.
“I like to cook,” he says. “(My favorite things to cook are) stromboli and pizza. I love to cook.”
His social worker Marian Kolcun says Franklin would do best if he were the youngest or only child in a family.
“Oh, plus maybe a dog! Every time I talk to him, there’s always a dog in the scenario, so if you have a dog, family, please!”
