Taiwanese accent

At the beginning of my study, I have been told many times that I have a Taiwanese accent, even by friends from Taiwan. I think that’s fine, there is no big deal of it.

but this afternoon, I met  a stranger, she is a friend of my friend, but i never knew her. during our first chat, she said my accent made her think that I’m from Taiwan. I said not, but every sentence I said after that made her more difficult to believe. She labeled me as a girl who always watch soap operas and entertainment programs. I said I rarely watched it, but she became more suspicious. I really don’t like her attitude and the way she looked at me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
