Ari Mandel was raised in a Hasidic community in Monsey, N.Y. He married at 18 and had a child a year later. At about the age of 22, he became an atheist. A couple of years later Mandel joined the US Army. After completing five years of service in 2011, Mandel enrolled in New York University, where he is currently studying for a bachelor’s degree. In his spare time, Mandel wonders why his least thought-out posts get the most attention.
