We are thrilled to welcome these new members. As a member of the new analyst class, I think I speak for everyone when I say how honored and happy we are to join the community. The new analyst class is a wonderful of people, and we have been able to get really close to one another throughout the initial weeks as YUCG members. After going through retreat, events, and training together, I am proud and glad that I can call all 14 of the others in my class close friends. From personal experience, joining YUCG as a first year analyst has already proved to be so valuable, teaching me skills related to interpersonal communication, both in professional and social settings, presentation, research, and more. I love the community and people in the club, and feel so close not only to my analyst class, but to everyone in the group. I am looking forward to the semesters ahead, and have been having a great time!
