When Junior Rumaga was young, he never thought of himself as someone who would write poetry, because he felt that it was only for kings and authors.
he grew up like to procrastinate and talk a lot among others, so that often when he started a conversation he would see his friends blessed but he didn’t know that it was a gift on the card

This time, the teacher asked them to compose a poem, when this young man said his, the whole school shouted, “Listen to this , listen to this.”
That’s how he got into poetry. After that, he participated in school poetry competitions and won them. Cups for the bearers.
When he was studying in the fifth year of high school, this young man came to know that there was a competition that was looking for assistant poets and he had to participate in it. He was assisted by the patron (Animateur) Rwantambara Stevenwho used to help him participate in competitions mixed with helping him in real life.
In the competition he lost, but his skills left the organizer who gave him the opportunity to work with him, they signed a three-year contract. This contract was supposed to start in 2017, but it didn’t happen, because they broke up without publishing any single poem, He decided to work on himself.
