Throughout her time at Columbia, she worked on her in-depth master’s project that focused on after-school sexual education workshops in Brooklyn and East Harlem that provide students with realistic and positive sexual education lessons that fill in the gaps of the NYC’s Department of Education’s mandates for “comprehensive” sex-ed curriculum in public middle and high schools. Every week, Gibson reported on sports and news for UptownRadio.org, a Columbia Radio News weekly hour-long radio broadcast that was broadcasted on WBAI 99.5FM Pacifica Radio in New York City.
