“I moved here from Jamaica when I was six, and my accent was so bad that I had to spend two years in ESL classes before anyone could understand me. I remember feeling very frustrated. I was surrounded by people with really thick accents who were trying to tell me that I needed to get rid of my accent.”



Ever noticed Americans talk about “cute English accents” and “cute Australian accents” but not “Cute Jamaican accents” or “cute Indian accents?”

My name is not Alayne, it’s Sansa Stark eldest daughter of lord Eddard Stark…Since my father was executed I’ve been a hostage in King’s Landing, a plaything for Joffrey to torture or queen Cersei to torment. They beat me, they humiliated me, they married me to the Imp.
