Meet Zari, Sesame Street’s latest star and first Afghan Muppet. The 6-year-old Muppet will be teaching young girls in Afghanistan about empowerment, identity, physical health and emotional wellbeing. But before she makes her TV debut on Baghch-e-Simsim, Afghanistan’s production of Sesame Street, she made a trip to the Women in the World Summit in New York City.

At the empowering event, Zari met Rula Ghani, the first lady of Afghanistan, and even fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg. InStyle scored an exclusive snap of their sweet first encounter.
