She's 16, but she had previous experience in TV, she used to star in a show
for children.

"After 5 years of being outlawed, television went back on the air in
Afghanistan on  Sunday The first broadcast started at 600pm , with news
read by a woman Maryam Shakiba. "it was important that a woman was first on
air, said the program director Homayuon Rawy, because for 5 years they were
prisoners." [shortened translated version of the french yahoo article]

you can see a picture of her here:
