Product Description

AS A CHILD, Mario’s home life was steeped in drug abuse and violence, leaving him broken and vulnerable. In an attempt to feel secure and empowered, he entered the drug world, a move that would forever change his destiny. Falling into the same patterns of dealing, robbing and harming others as those who had destroyed his family, Mario robbed, shot, and killed a twenty-seven-year-old drug dealer at age sixteen.

Charged and convicted as an adult, he spent three years in solitary before the age of twenty-two. He served nineteen years in sixteen different adult prisons. During that time, he was kicked out of nine prisons and classified as “incorrigible.” Through maturity, the pain of imprisonment, and the nurturing of his parents, Mario found his purpose: to help others avoid a life of crime through education and self-improvement.

Reformed presents the intimate success story of one inmate’s transformation from prison to purpose.

MARIO BUENO is a published scholar, transformational speaker, and reform expert. Mario was released from prison on January 22, 2014. He graduated from Wayne State University in 2016 with a Bachelor in Business, and then spent time as a legislative aide for the Michigan House of Representatives. Today, his non-profit LUCK, Inc. employs certified, formerly incarcerated men to train and mentor at-risk youth and returning citizens in an attempt to safeguard the community. He is co-host of Main Street, a weekly TV show that pairs real main street economic challenges with tangible solutions.
