The Rubicon

Tristan Hitchens-Brookins
Tristan Hitchens-Brookins is a second year staff writer for Rubiconline. He runs track and field (and he's double jointed). Tristan has two little brothers, one little sister, and three older brothers. He reads in a book group called Teens Know Best. Tristan's favorite video game is Injustice 2 and his favorite character to play as is The Flash. During his first year writing for The Rubicon and Rubiconline he learned that anyone can see what he writes, thinks, and feels about a topic and what goes on in the SPA community. This led Tristan to believe he needs to take this responsibility seriously and that he's in a position that can influence a certain amount of people. You can reach Tristan at
