Why Anamika joined the YMC: "The summer before my sophomore year I explored social media ventures of my own, creating content for platforms like Tiktok and Pinterest. I tracked the progress of my different accounts, fiddling with different metrics and adopting tactics in a trial-and-error fashion. The following school year I was introduced to YMC. YMC attracts really fantastic, experienced, and inspiring speakers, and likewise curious students who are eager to learn. I reached out to the co-founders of DaysOff chocolate after being introduced through YMC and plan to intern with them in August. I am so excited to be a part of YMC's leadership team this year and provide valuable opportunities and experiences for other students."
