Guys her Galician side is not Galicia Poland/Ukraine it’s Galicia, Spain… the reason for the similarities in names is because they were both colonized by the Celts ages ago
i see in her more Galician appearance (from NW Spain) than eastern european, but she is too tanned to be a northern spanish woman…
I have to disagree with you there, yes she does look like her Galician side as well because she has a more western European look to her, but she could definitely pass in Slavic countries regardless of not having fully Eastern European features. Compare here to these Slavic girls:

yeah this is very interesting !!!!!!! i didn’t know so much about galicia and poland, yet there is a largeexcept the fact that your president just died !!! so sad !!!
But like i said before, galicia is also a state in spain, so i wonder if she could have spanish (or spaniard idk) ancestry
It is Galicia from Spain , It is obvious that she has Spanish blood, her last name is Fernandez.
