Is she Asian?

Hey guys, click on the link and you'll listen to a voice clip.

I want you to tell me if the girl who's speaking has an Asian accent.
Maybe you find a different accent. Just tell me what you think.

By the way, it's not me. :D

:? Don't know. Some Asians I know sound like White or Black people talking, and some just sound ESL. And I still don't know what an Asian accent is supposed to sound like, so no opinion, I guess.

Well, do you remember when your family moved to the US? How did you guys sound when you started to learn English? Didn't you guys sound Asian speaking in English?
I'm sure you've heard some of your cousins speaking like that.

Actually no. We sounded like Vietnamese with bad English. My cousins sound like people who are born here with no accent or California accent if you're defining it in teachnical term. My cousin's wife came here when she was two years old, but sometimes she still has that Chinese accent, which she pronounce some words really Chinesy. My cousin's friend was born in the States, but she has a strong Chinese accent when she's mad. Otherwise, she has American accent. So, what kinda Asian accent are you asking about? the born here one or the ESL one? :?

The ESL ones of course. Asian people who are born in the US or move there at an early age do not sound Asian. They sound white so I'm not referring to them. :)

Well someone thinks she sounds Asian but I don't think she does. Maybe I'm wrong and she really does. That's why I need your help here. :D
