- May 3 by ClementiaI get asked all the time about my religion and my accent. I wear a head covering, so everyone thinks I'm Amish (or Mennonite, or Mormon, or a nun). And, despite being born and raised in the USA, something about my accent leads everyone to think I'm from some other country ( Ireland, England, Sweden, Russia). I always have to assure them I'm not exotic in any way. Most people are very polite, even apologetic, about asking, so it doesn't really bother me to have to explain it over and over.
- May 3 by daisy-maeI was born in the suburbs of Chicago, but apparently I have an accent, so I've been told. My favorite response to the where do I come from question....... Earth.
Keep your head up and have a great weekend.
