Writer Dominican born, Puerto Rico and Chicago raised blogger Anyiné (ann-yee-neh) “Angie” Galván-Rodríguez, identifies herself as a AfroLatina.   What began as a “naturalista''blog about her natural hair journey and hair product reviews, flourished into a pathway to embracing and confirming her identity as an Afro-Latina.
