    - elchueco, CNN iReport producer

    I learned to speak in the Bahamas with an emphasis on the Queen's English. Then at the age of 8, I got dropped in the middle of South Florida and continued my development among the mix of Jamaicans, Trinidadians, Cubans, Puerto Ricans, and of course African and Anglo Americans to name a few... My accent is certainly not very Bahamian anymore, but I don't think its American either except maybe in that America "the melting pot" definition. My accent certainly reflects that. I also tend to be a verbal chameleon, without any effort or consciousness I pick up the accent of the people I'm around.
