Shabnam Doran was a TV presenter in Afghanistan before the Taliban took over the reins of power in the country

For many women in Afghanistan, life changed on the eve of the Taliban’s takeover of the country last August.

For a TV presenter, it meant the end of her career, as well as of her hopes and dreams. And here she is, a year later, trying to build a new life as a refugee in the UK.

On August 14, 2021, the night of the Taliban’s capture of the capital, Kabul, Shabnam Doran was preparing to present the news bulletin on the official Tolo TV screen. At that time, the Taliban forces were advancing towards the capital after they had succeeded in extending their control over large parts of the country.

The 24-year-old was a rising star. It went out on the air to announce the news to the viewers, who did not turn their eyes from the television screens to follow the developments of the field confrontations.
