Ayman and Zaiba were selected following a competitive process involving thousands of applicants 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, said a press release received from London.
The Queen's Young Leaders Award winners take part in a year-long leadership course run by the University of Cambridge and receive bespoke mentoring.

Later this month, during their time in the UK, Ayman and Zaiba will visit 10 Downing Street, take part in master classes at the BBC World Service and the UK Headquarters of Facebook.
Award winners will then meet with the Commonwealth Secretary-General and High Commissioners from across the Commonwealth, before receiving their Award from the Queen at Buckingham Palace.
They will also attend workshops at the University of Cambridge and visit projects that are changing the lives of vulnerable people in the UK.
Dr Astrid Bonfield CBE, Chief Executive of The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust said through selfless determination, the Queen's Young Leaders of 2018 are dedicating their lives to bring positive change to those around them.
"Their visit to the UK this June provides them with a unique opportunity to connect with each other and gain valuable lessons from experts and leaders from all walks of life which we hope will help transform the reach of their endeavours for many years to come."
The Queen's Young Leaders programme 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.
