We had the good fortune of connecting with Darion Ahonen and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Darion, what role has risk played in your life or career?
In life you gotta take risk, being scared to go outside your comfort zone may be the reason you haven’t got to the top of that mountain you have been climbing.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I’m a professional dancer on a comedy tour called Law No Order.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Sadly in Hopkinsville there’s not a lot to do it’s a small with nothing much to do. I want to move out of this area very soon!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My name is Darion Ahonen, I’m 24 I’m from Hopkinsville Ky. Im currently on tour with a group called Law No Order. Im a professional dancer been dancing for about 17 years now. I have gained a amazing family of 1.4 Million followers on TikTok. My goal is life is to entertain and inspire people around the world. I was told in 2018 my life would be limited. I had two brain surgeries that took everything away from me. I will never be able to work a normal, but I knew I had dancing. My brothers TK and Cook Up have been by my side my brothers my partners for 5 years. I want to show people that know matter how hard life gets you can always find a way to make it work. My quote I go by is what my Paul told me, he passed in 2007 he told me shoot for the starts even if you miss, but keep your feet planted firmly on the ground. I will continue to go by that and spread the three words I stand by Peace, Love, and positivity! My biggest role models in my life would have to be my mom and my dad and my brother, they always pushed me to keep working and keep goin no matter what! I will give whatever it takes to be successful and make it to the top and help and give back to the people that was there for me!
