Hortencia was born in Cerro de Ortega and grew up in Colima, Mexico, attended University in Guadalajara and became a teacher. She moved to Atlanta, Georgia in 1986 and became an American Citizen in 1990.  Carlos and Hortencia met in Atlanta, Georgia in 1995. They were married in 2001 and have a home in Colima, Mexico.

They founded Stronger Wings in 2010 after learning that three, 4.0 high school students in the small village of Cerro de Ortega, Mexico would not be able to attend College because they could not afford tuition, housing, and other related school expenses. Using their own money and resources, Carlos and Hortencia have now sponsored more than 15 girls, three of which have graduated with honors from the University of Colima and are now working in in their respective fields of study.

Every penny of every donation Carlos and Hortencia receives goes directly to help these girls.
