Born in Pontiac, Michigan, Mario Bueno, author of “Reformed: Memoir of a Juvenile Killer”, grew up in a broken home, and was exposed to drugs and violence.  He was 16 when he robbed and killed a drug dealer.  Convicted as an adult and sentenced to 22 to 40 years in prison for murder, he was deemed “incorrigible”, beyond correction or reform, and served 19 consecutive years in prison. Today, “reformed”, Mario is the co-founder/co-director of LUCK (Leaders Under Correct Knowledge).  He has mentored hundreds of at-risk youth, helping them to reach their highest potential and make a positive difference in their neighborhoods and in the world.
