a beautiful woman who is born into a Jewish family. She has beautiful sparkling eyes that can be commanding at times. She’s always there for her friends and treats the closest ones like family. If Chava’s put trust on you, you better keep it and secure! She has her father’s face, but her mom’s gorgeous eyes. She will kick your ass, so watch out! She has low- self esteem, so she covers it up with Popularity. She has high emotions, too! Try to get a Chava friend. They’re awesome!
