The Queen’s Young Leaders Awards recognise and celebrate exceptional young people aged 18 to 29 in the Commonwealth who are driving change within their communities and transforming people’s lives.

Sharing the good news on her Instagram page, Hauwa wrote,

When Prince Harry uses you as an example in his congratulatory message. Wait for it. GOD!!!  Again I ask, “What would happen if one woman told the truth about her life? The world would split open”

I am humbled, dazed, excited and honoured to be a part of the final @queensyoungleaders I’m still trying to digest the fact that out of 4000 people across the commonwealth, I was selected alongside 59.

I kept hearing “You really stood out, Hauwa” It’s mind-blowing! I’ll be honoured by Her Majesty the Queen of England herself in Buckingham Palace. I honestly can’t wait to meet the rest of the cohort, learn about their work, collaborate and amplify through mentoring, networking and learning.

If you’re reading this, I’ll do more than thank you! I choose to congratulate you. We did this! Every like, comment, share, silent and open donation, showing up, calling the helpline, sending us contacts, volunteering, advising, helping, amplifying. Congratulations!

Ya Allah! I haven’t done much today because I’m dazed by want it means to “listen and do” with tawakkul (complete and utter trust in Allah). All I’ve done today is reflect. ALHAMDULILLAH! I’m speechless.

This is TRULY what happens when one woman tells the truth about her life. The world indeed splits open. #QueensYoungLeaders
