Savannah has lived in downtown Ottawa for five years while completing a bachelor of commerce degree at the University of Ottawa.

Also from the Greater Toronto Area, Anchal moved to Ottawa to pursue her studies in Communication and Political Science at the University of Ottawa. Over the past few years, she has applied her knowledge in the field of communication through a variety of initiatives, the most notable being her work at the Fulcrum.
