For a long time, the whole world talked about the Great American Dream. That you could be from any godforsaken corner or hellhole in the world but if you got to America and worked hard you could achieve your dreams and become successful. The Great American Dream drew people from all over the globe and each success story [and there were a lot of them] reinforced this feeling. Of late this dream has soured especially after 2001 and now people don’t talk about it the way they used to. Still, there are takers for this dream, and now and then you hear a story about some person who made it big in America against all the odds. One such person is Azur Kamara, the young man from Africa who came to the USA at a very young age, worked hard and with his passion and talent has become a promising young American football star who everybody is talking about. His is a bona fide journey from nothing-to-all that will inspire everybody who hears about it. Here are a few details from Azur Kamara’s wiki.

Kamara’s mother and stepfather came to America 20 years back to try to make a life for themselves and their large family but left their children behind in New Guinea. The children were classified as refugees at that time. Luckily Kamara’s mother was granted asylum in the USA and Azur and his siblings were allowed to come to America and live with their mother. Azur was just 10 years old at that time and found himself friendless and confused in Phoenix, Arizona, with the added problem that he didn’t speak a word of English. He was interested in playing soccer then but a caring coach urged him to try American football in high school. Azur listened and this decision has shaped his life from that moment on and soon he was playing for Central High School. After completing high school Azur played for a couple of seasons for Arizona Western College before joining the University of Kansas on a scholarship in 2017.

He impressed everybody with his skills in the Senior Bowl and NFL Combine and in 2020 he was signed on to the Dallas Cowboys. He was injured for most of his first year but later when he got a chance he made his mark on the game. Now he is a certainty to play for the Dallas Cowboys in the 2021 NFL season and everybody in the sport is looking forward to watching Azur Kamara play. Now the whole country knows Azur’s success story thanks to him being featured in the HBO sports docuseries Hard Knocks. Since then a lot of people are talking about Azur Kamara and Alvin Kamara and are wondering if Alvin is indeed Azur Kamara’s brother. Alvin Kamara is an American football running back who plays for the New Orleans of the NFL and has been a big star since 2017. Alvin Kamara is not Azur Kamara’s brother and this confusion exists because they share the same surname. They are both from Africa but they are not related in any way.

The Dream is Still Alive!

Fans want to know if Azur Kamara has a wife or girlfriend but according to reports, he is not married as of now. Even if he has a girlfriend people don’t know about her since Azur doesn’t talk about his personal life. He talks about his journey from the dusty lands of Africa to the well-lit stadiums in America to the media because everybody wants to hear about his incredible hard work and dedication that made this amazing feat possible. Azur thanks his mother for giving him the strength and determination to make this happen and is very grateful to God. Azur Kamara is living proof that the Great American Dream is still alive and kicking. Down but not yet out! The world has changed but some dreams are still worth fighting for!
