My name is Franklin. I’m
19
years old.

Franklin admits that he is shy with people he doesn’t know very well. “But after I get to know them, I’m relaxed and can be myself,” he says. “I’m kind, nice and funny and have a dry sense of humor.” Franklin looks forward to shopping for clothes. “I like to look good. I prefer to be dressed up rather than dressed casually,” he notes. But if he must dress casually, he prefers attire relating to sports teams. “If I can get everything to match, that’s the best thing! Who doesn’t like to look good? For Christmas I always ask for a lot of team clothes.” Franklin enjoys going to school. He earns good grades and has many friends. He says all his teachers are nice and one of them buys the students a present when they do well.
