Tschuna Gibson

Fulbright ETA , 2012, Austria

Tschuna Gibson served as a teaching assistant for high school-aged students while attending courses at the University of Vienna. Gibson, who is from Midlothian, Va., graduated from VCU in May with bachelor’s degrees in international studies and philosophy. She also pursued research into the ways that Austrians have come to understand responsible resource management and biodiversity as a prerequisite to a high quality of life. The research builds on a previous internship in Austria in which Gibson gained insight into organic farming and sustainable food production in the country.
