She will be representing the province of East Flanders at the national contest. Kedist is excited for her journey and feels that she has a lot of time to prepare herself up for the grand competition. The ceremony was held privately due to the increase of covid19 cases in the country.  

Born in Ethiopia, Kedist is 22 years of age and a hairdresser by profession. She was adopted by the couple Peter Deltour and Nadège Debeer when she was 10-years-old. She mentioned, “I've been so lucky. I ended up with the sweetest parents you can imagine.” She describes herself as someone who has a good heart and would help everyone. She also mentioned that she likes to boss around sometimes which is something she wants to change and is working on.
