Muslims in the Mainstream: Usman Iftikhar, Commonwealth Young Person of the Year
Australia’s Usman Iftikhar Awarded Commonwealth Young Person of the Year. Usman Iftikhar is the CEO of Catalysr – a business that helps skilled migrants establish businesses in Australia. This award is a top Commonwealth honour in London to recognise outstanding contributions to the community.
Prince Harry gave Mr Iftikhar the Commonwealth Young Person of the Year award at a forum in London attended by hundreds of young delegates from across the 53 member nations of the Commonwealth.
There were several hundred nominees and Mr Iftikhar was one of four finalists but was still taken aback by the award.
