While growing up I shared one room with my sister’s. Jenny and Leticia shared a queen size bed, Herlinda slept on the upper bunk, Mary and I slept on the bottom bunk and Lupe had a white wooden baby crib.

Johnny is the “baby” of the Hurtado family, In spite of all his siblings loving, spoiling and telling him what to do. He has shown his own personal strengths and character with his love for wrestling, when he started at the age of four years old and continued throughout his college years. He currently volunteers as a wrestling coach for the local youth in his community.
