The 2023 King’s Birthday Honours List has recognized British-Pakistani diplomat Fouzia Younis for her outstanding achievements to UK foreign policy.

She was formerly the chief of communications at the British High Commission in Islamabad and is now the first British-Muslim Consul General in Toronto.

Younis has received an MBE, or Member of the Order of the British Empire, a distinguished honor given by the head of state to honor accomplishments in particular sectors.

Younis praised the eminent people from many spheres of British society who had made it onto the prestigious list on Twitter while expressing her appreciation and pride. She expressed her gratitude for being recognized for her services to international policy by being named to the King’s Birthday Honours list and receiving an MBE.

Younis has dutifully performed four separate duties for the British government over the course of two decades. She oversaw the royal visit in 2019, facilitated the repatriation of many British citizens during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, assisted with flood relief efforts in the same year, and celebrated the long-awaited return of the England Cricket team after 17 years while serving as head of communications in Pakistan.
