The meaning of the song “Fly Away” is found within the heartbeat of inner strength, within the heart that beats for thousands that beats for one. In tandem with the mission of Hope Academy Charter school, and so many others like it, A.Lewins takes the time to connect with children on a personal basis with his music and enthusiasm, just as Hope Academy attempts to “educate one child at a time” through smaller classrooms and one on one interaction between teacher and student.
A.Lewins’ favorite saying is that he came from “corner to cornerstone”, as he battled adversity and has become a successful artist while doing the things he loves most. It is this dream that he wants to instill in the people he meets, most of all in children, that with enough effort and dedication anything is achievable. This is indicative of the Hope Academy’s perspective as well, as Susan Davis, a Speech Therapist at the academy for 10 years says, “We are trying to fulfill a collective dream of providing an alternate school for children to help them find success”.
Hope Academy Charter School is located at 601 Brand Ave in Asbury Park. It is a K-8 grade school with over 100 students. The after school program is a popular program that also involves others schools in the area such as Our Lady of Mount Carmel School, and will be opening its doors to A.Lewins on Friday December 17th at 4pm.
Arturo Lewin is a hip hop artist born in Red Bank, New Jersey. The Panamanian American artist has been involved in music for years and now he has embarked on his quest to become the next big name in the music industry.
