"My name is Tally Dilbert and I'm a proud Afro-Latina. I was born and raised in Honduras. I currently attend the University of Texas at San Antonio and major in communication. My main passion is blogging and photography. I love to be creative and build relationships with people.

As an Afro-Latina, I love to share my culture and my beautiful country, Honduras. Ever since I started blogging on Instagram, I've shared about my roots and I embrace being able to speak Spanish which is why I also try to share that side of me on social media. By doing these things, I've been able to connect with other Honduras and also Afro-Latinas around the United States." ~ Tally Dilbert

"Que lo que! My name is Giselle Duran, and I am a graphic and web designer, in addition to a content creator. I was born and raised in New Jersey, after both my parents immigrated from the Dominican Republic. Later, like several Hispanics, we migrated to Florida, where I attended high school and college. It was there that I was truly immersed in my Dominican background.
To me being Afro-Latina means proving others wrong. It means being knowledgeable and proud of your heritage, and not denying your roots when brought up in conversation. My experience being Afro-Dominican is the familiar look of surprise when I say “tenga un buen día” with a smile, after overhearing people talk about me in Spanish. It means having to deal with the looks of disbelief when you say “Soy Dominicana” and they still question after explaining what cities my parents were born in."
