How to write thank-you email to IBers you have networked with?

Currently a sophomore who just accepted a SA 2021 position at a EB (Moe/Laz/Evr). I want to now reach out to everyone who I have networked with so far to thank them for their help and also update them on my offer. A lot of these people are from different firms and even at companies where I had interviews coming up at. I want to know what is the best way to reach out and say thank you while also explaining why I accepted this offer instead of interviewing at their firm.

I know sending these things is not necessary but I want to jic I don't end up liking the culture at the EB and want to switch to another firm for FT.

A template or some general guidelines would be very helpful. Thank you.

Anyone else think OP is just trying to flex that they got an SA offer?

Jfc OP you got an offer so clearly you were smart enough to send networking emails/thank you emails/study technicals quit the BS

There is a real possibility that OP is a diversity candidate and didn't need to put in much effort to get an offer so this is a legit question.

Wasn't trying to flex. Sorry if it came out that way. Genuinely wanted some advice.

can you help out the people on WSO still recruiting rn by talking about how you ended up with an offer at a top EB? congrats, by the way.
FWIW if you're a kid I liked during networking, would appreciate a short email saying I accepted an offer already, but thanks for all your time, will stay in touch. 2 lines max so it doesn't seem like you're flexing to them.
