“Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming. What do we do? We swim, swim.” – Dory

Tristen, a steadfast believer in Dory’s influential philosophy from Finding Nemo and Finding Dory, lives by the mantra “Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming.” He confronts life’s obstacles with an unwavering determination to preserve, guided by this empowering principle. During his junior year of high school, Tristen discovered HOSA and recognized the opportunity to apply this philosophy for lasting impact. Tristen’s dedication to “Just keep swimming” extends beyond his initial encounter with HOSA. Currently studying Neuroscience and Chicano-Latino Studies at the University of Minnesota, he immerses himself in these fields, fueled by a passion to make a difference. Aspiring to become a Pediatric Neuropsychologist specializing in neurodegenerative diseases in Latin America, Tristen is determined to improve healthcare and provide support to those in need, embodying the spirit of Dory throughout his journey. Within HOSA, Tristen’s unwavering commitment to “Just keep swimming” forges unbreakable bonds, fosters a supportive network and unlocks limitless possibilities. His vision is to transform the central region into a dynamic hub of collaboration, innovation, and personal growth, propelling HOSA members toward greater opportunities. Through his infectious enthusiasm and resilient mindset, Tristen leads by example, inspiring others to surpass their limits and embrace new paths. Tristen hopes to encourage fellow HOSA members to persevere in adversity, unlocking their true potential. Together, driven by their shared commitment to excellence and perseverance, HOSA members can empower themselves to make a difference on both local and global scales. As they navigate the currents of life, united by a shared philosophy, they can envision a future as healthcare professionals where everyone continues to “Just keep swimming.”
