Chantal 1 of 2 Chantal is a 20-year-old college sophomore who is half Native American and half white. She is an only child and has always enjoyed being the center of her parents' attention. Chantal's father is a computer engineer arid her mother is a homemaker. Chantal grew up in British Columbia (BC), a province in Canada.
