Marciel is a psychology honours student from Stellenbosch. She wants to be Miss South Africa so that she can involve herself in education, focusing on skills development.
She is inspired by strong women such as Angelina Jolie and Caster Semenya. She loves running and reading in her spare time.
Her message to young women: "Never let people talk you out of your dreams. You had a purpose before anyone had an opinion. If you want something, make it happen. Never limit yourself by the belief system of others."
