Kaun is 19 and he is from Taiwan. When people point out that his face is older than his age, he replies that inside there's an old man's soul. Kaun likes to help people and be surrounded with nature. He is looking to improve his English and thought the Catholic Worker Farm would be the perfect opportunity for that.
