The Awards recognize the work that young people from across the Commonwealth are doing to transform lives in their communities and beyond

Two Bangladeshis – Ayman Sadiq and Zaiba Tahyya – were conferred with the prestigious “Queen's Young Leaders Award'” in a special ceremony at Buckingham Palace, London.

They were given the awards on Tuesday.

The award recognizes the work that young people from across the Commonwealth are doing to transform lives in their communities and beyond.

Ayman Sadiq, 25, from Dhaka, Bangladesh, received the award for his work on improving access to education for young people throughout Bangladesh.

Meanwhile, 27-year-old Zaiba Tahyya received the award for her work in promoting gender equality in society. She is also from Dhaka.

Ayman and Zaiba were selected following a competitive process involving thousands of applicants from across the Commonwealth.

Together they join a network of 240 powerful young leaders, from 53 Commonwealth countries, who are driving change to make the world a better place.

The 2018 Queen's Young Leaders are finding solutions to global issues such as: climate change, food scarcity, gender-based violence, mental health, and access to education, a press release said.

The Queen's Young Leaders Award winners took part in a year-long leadership course run by the University of Cambridge and received bespoke mentoring.

The Queen's Young Leaders program was established in 2014 by The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust in partnership with Comic Relief, The Royal Commonwealth Society and the University of Cambridge's Institute of Continuing Education—in recognition of The Queen's lifetime of service to the Commonwealth.
