In 1973 at 11 years old, Bryan won the “I AM SOMEBODY” essay contest and was the star of the KABC nationally televised contest.
His mother helped him write the essay; however, Bryan spoke that he would be somebody into his reality from impoverished Watts, California. Bryan's mother, Mary Franklin, and God helped Bryan and his brothers to believe that they could be anything they wanted to be without limits. His brother, Dr. Rodney Franklin, MD, did it from the hood and their oldest Brother, Derick Franklin, the Safety Specialist for the United States Postal Service, helped his younger brothers reach for their dreams while living in the hood. Both of Bryan's brothers are proud members of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc.
