      Yes, I have a slight strange accent. I was born in Scotland, but lived my life split between Africa, England and the USA.

      I have moved around the UK quite a lot and lived with people from all over so my accent is a mixed english accent and changes from being more midlands to more yorkshire depending on who I’m talking to!

      Yes, I was born and lived in Scotland until I was 24, then lived in Canada for 3 years (where I picked up some of the accent). Now I live near Stoke-On-Trent. When I first came back to the UK, a lot of people thought I was American!

      Having grown up in Singapore, I have a Singaporean accent. I’m not sure if you have heard a Singaporean accent before. In fact, we all have accents. The reason why we don’t notice our own accent is because we are used to it, having heard it all the time!
