Majak Daw

Born on March 11, 1991, Daw is a professional Australian rules footballer in the Australian Football League (AFL). He and his family in Australia are refugees from the civil wars in Sudan. Daw was the first Sudanese Australian to be drafted to an AFL club when he was contracted to the North Melbourne Football Club in the 2009 AFL Draft. Daw’s drafting gained international attention especially when BBC and the Voice of America reported on it. Daw made his first appearance for North Melbourne in an NAB Cup match on 20 February 2011.
