Elena Marmo on WaterAid

Elena Marmo of WaterAid joined Lisa Marie Latino in the #HipNJ studio to discuss her work with the amazing organization.

WaterAid is an international development organization, working in over 35 countries. They provide access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene.

The Parsippany native tells Latino that there are 844 million people across the globe that do not have access to clean water. “That’s about one in every ten people,” she states.

Marmo has visited Colombia and Cambodia to help spread the mission of WaterAid. They hope to provide clean water to everyone, everywhere by 2030. “We’re on our way, but we’ve still got some work to do.”

In May, students from Montclair State University, Rutgers University and Ramapo University will be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money and awareness for the cause. To learn more, click here.

Chris Reilly on New Flight Digital Media

Chris Reilly, founder of New Flight Digital Media, joined Lisa Marie Latino in the #HipNJ studio to discuss his entrepreneurial venture.

Reilly is currently studying Animation at Fairleigh Dickinson University, which he is using to his advantage at New Flight. “A lot of what we do has to do with bringing products in and having their best view show through,” Reilly states. “We are trying to have our animation efforts accent the products.”

New Flight is working with local business, including the Archdiocese of Newark, to help pizazz their brands. “I have always had this passion for visual effects and 3-D animation,” he states. “A lot of the local communities have companies that don’t have such a great handle on product images.” So, he hopes to bring out the beauty of such products through images and video.
