Introduction from Tristen Stover.

I am Tristen. My full name is Tristen Lee Stover. I am nineteen years old. I graduated from Marysville High School in 2015. I have one sibling. His name is Tory and he is 23 years old. Through out my life I have played a couple of sports and also have done a few other things. A couple sports that I have played were golf and also I snowboarded. I started golfing when I was in the 8th grade and golfed all the way through my senior year. I was on the golf team for five years. I started snowboarding when I was a freshman in high school. Snowboarding is a lot of fun and but sometimes you can get very tired and or cold! Through out high school I also ran track. I only ran track a couple years though because one year I got tendinitis. On the other hand, I was a dancer for many years. I was in tap, jazz, hip hop and also gymnastics. I was a cheer leader when I was younger but I didn't really like it so after a year or two I was done cheering. A fun fact about me is that I plan on majoring in nursing later on in my future.

This is me at Mad River Mountain.

This is me snowboarding.

 The theme that stood out to me in "A Long Way Gone" in the first chapter was survival. I feel like this theme is important because I think that Junior and Talloi will eventually have to fight for themselves and not count on others. If they are not able to fight for themselves and do things on there own, they will probably never survive the situations that they have already started to see in the first chapter. The theme survival to me means overcoming difficult circumstances. Like for example, Junior and Talloi will eventually have to face difficult and hard circumstances/situations.


  1. Wow, you did a lot of extra curricular! Thats awesome! For snowboarding do you go to mad river or snow trails? and do you have a specific hospital that you have picked out you would like to work at?

    1. Yes I did! And when I go snowboarding I go to Mad River! It is a lot of fun! Oh and for the specific hospital I would like to work at is the OSU hospital.
