Gabriela Baláž Maduro is a Florida native with strong ties to both Slovakia and the United States. She graduated from Florida State University in 2019 with BA degrees in history, German and English. From 2019 to 2020, she studied and interned in Cologne and Regensburg, Germany, as a participant in the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals (CBYX). While in Germany, she had the opportunity to further develop her interest in Central European languages and cultures in addition to further cultivating her passion for teaching and intercultural exchange.

Gabriela is very much looking forward to her first year as a teaching assistant in Austria. She will be teaching at two schools in Fürstenfeld and is excited to not only share her experiences as a Slovak-American with her students but also to learn from her students’ unique perspectives.
