Ariel Salem


NO FISH TALE: Ariel Salem wants to travel, would like to write a book, will soon be completing a double major in history and religious studies in fewer than the usual four years, and recently has taken advantage of Santa Barbara’s top-notch rock-climbing spots. In short, this Indy intern is well on his way to making a name for himself-just make sure you pronounce it correctly. It’s “R-E-L,” unlike a certain fishtailed Disney princess unleashed on the world shortly after Salem was born. “I like to say that Disney copied me,” joked the West Hills native.
