Queen Elizabeth to present award
Britain’s Queen Elizabeth is set to present an award to a young man from Bangladesh on Thursday (23.06.16).
The 90-year-old royal will dish out the gong to Osama Bin Noor, 25, during a ceremony at Buckingham Palace, London after being recognised for taking the lead in transforming the lives of others and making a difference in his community.
Osama – who co-founded Youth Opportunities, an online platform advertising scholarships, internships and conferences – said: “I’m so happy to be a recipient of The Queen’s Young Leaders Award.”
However, Osama will be just one of many to receive the Queen’s Young Leader award as he joins the winners from 45 Commonwealth countries in London for five days of high-level engagements, which will help their life-changing work.
Before picking up the prize, the winners will visit 10 Downing Street – the headquarters of Her Majesty’s Government – as well as pay a visit to the UK headquarters of Twitter.
But that’s not all as the winners will also get to meet the Commonwealth Secretary General, take part in workshops at the University of Cambridge and have meetings with UK business leaders, according to Prothom Alo Online.
Osama explained: “To be recognised for my work and be presented with an Award by Her Majesty The Queen at Buckingham Palace is such a huge honour.
“I can’t wait to meet all the other winners in London and get involved in all the exciting activities that are taking place.”
