Ismat Sarah Mangla

Journalist in Manhattan, New York

I'm an award-winning journalist with experience in multiple journalism platforms, including print, television and web. My current gig is writing about money and religion (not necessarily at the same time) for Quartz. I've previously worked at Time Inc., Marketwatch, Al Jazeera America and the International Business Times.

My writing has been published in Money, Fortune, Time, CNNMoney, MarketWatch, Al Jazeera America, International Business Times, USA Today, The Washington Post, The Detroit Free Press and Michigan Alumnus magazine, among others. As a staff writer at Time Inc.'s Money magazine, my work earned a Gerald Loeb Award and finalist nomination, a Henry Luce Award, a SABEW Best in Business Award, and a Deadline Club finalist nomination.

In a previous life, I was also the founder and editor of Nirali Magazine, a popular web magazine for the South Asian diaspora.

While I'm a Midwestern girl at heart, I live in New York City, where I spend way too much money on cabs.
