About Marcel

When Marcel walks into a room, you take notice. Talkative, outgoing and confident, this delightful boy loves math, reading and science, “because they make me learn better.”

A bundle of energy, Marcel’s perfect day would include going to the park with his friends to feed the ducks – “It’s fun because they quack at you!” – then heading home for a meal of chicken and rice, broccoli, green beans and bread, followed by a big dish of vanilla ice cream with sprinkles. After that, he’d turn on the TV to watch his favorite show, Ben 10.

“He has a watch that gives him superpowers and turns him into an alien, so he can stop the bad guys,” says Marcel. “If I had superpowers I’d save the world.”

In fact, superpowers are what Marcel would wish for if he came across a magic genie. Superpowers, new shoes and a game boy.

Marcel’s looking for a family that likes basketball, spending time outdoors and celebrating birthdays – he’s got his fingers crossed for a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles party for his next one.
