She has no accent so I assumed she was born here. She mentioned swimming “in the US” at one point, where is she from?


She is Singaporean and was born in Singapore.

Her older brother is Quah Zheng Wen who swims for CAL and her older sister is Quah Ting Wen

She was born and raised in Singapore, only moved to the US last summer. The majority of Americans don’t know this but English is the mother tongue / first language of most Singaporeans and switching to a “full-on” American accent is not too difficult when you grow up on Hollywood (Netflix these days) and American sub-culture.

I mean neither her brother nor Schooling have accents and they were both born and raised in Singapore (Schooling spent more than half his life in Singapore)


Singaporeans are pretty good in English. Jing Wen is very fluent in her interview.
