Saloni Gajjar

Saloni Gajjar, Content Editor

Saloni Gajjar is the content editor at The Teal Mango. Her passion lies in pop culture content is evident in her work with Complex, Interview, Brown Girl Magazine. Her goal is to show culture and the arts as a medium and mirror of the society, much beyond just entertainment, and hopefully breaking the barriers associated with South Asians living in the United States. She is an alum of NYU’s Magazine Writing program. When she’s not writing about pop culture, she’s busy consuming it [aka binge-watching], meditating, reading, or forcing her friends to watch “The Americans,” which, FYI Rahul Khanna has starred in.
