passion: writing poetry and short stories.
work remained completely invisible to the world until one day in 2011, he
befriended a woman named Shalla. The video below is a critically acclaimed
documentary called “The Conditioned” and it tells the incredibly story of
Ramundo’s life and how it changed after giving Shalla one of his poems. Shalla
