Probably depends on where you were brought up! We all tend to speak with the accent of our parents and friends.
It is not difficult to change an accent, if you wish (and if you are transplanted to another area of the world). I had a strong Southwest American accent when I moved to Canada. It wasn't long until I dropped the H in Vehicle and the R out of Wash, kicked the WEE out of Employee and Queue out of Coupon, began making Route rhyme with boot (instead of out), and even put a Shh into Schedule.
Harder was learning how to spell all over again! I once lost a grade school spelling bee for putting a middle E in judgement - I had to change my citizenship to prove I was right all along! But the grey/gray, traveler/traveller, pajamas/pyjamas, check/cheque, stuff I just wasn't expecting! I thought the differences would be limited to colour/color and centre/center! Thank God I didn't have to swing all the way to kerb (curb) and gaol (jail), or I might have headed back home!
