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. Follow Salem’s work online at independent.com/asalem.
