Syed Faizan Hussain, one of the winners of Queen's Young Leader Award 2017, is a Pakistani student who used his knowledge in technology to create solutions within our community.

During his time with the Saylani Welfare Trust, Hussain mentored over 200 students from underprivileged backgrounds, according to his profile on the Queen's Leadership Award website.

He has also developed a number of startups, including Edu-Aid, an app that translates sign language into spoken language and OneHealth, a disease surveillance and tracking system which notifies health institutions about epidemic outbreaks.

The young entrepreneur is currently looking to develop Venture Dart, a technology consultant and outsourcing company for small businesses and entrepreneurs.

The Queen's Young Leaders is an annual award that recognises young leadership potential in people between the ages of 18-29 from the Commonwealth of Nations. The program was established by the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust, in partnership with Comic Relief and the Royal Commonwealth Society in 2014.
