Hi Nasr, there are several things you can do to reduce your accent. First, you should raise your awareness of the differences between your pronunciation and the standard US English version. Listen to the speakers on your VOA files and analyze their accents/dialects. Second, you should read a text aloud and record your own voice. Then listen to your recording and try to find out what sounds you pronounce differently. Now, listen to the original recording again and try to imitate the speaker(s).
Finally, you should also be aware that reducing your accent is a process and it’s often more important to sound ‘natural’ rather than trying too hard to sound like somebody else. You should have a ‘healthy self-confidence’, this means, be aware of a good and clear pronunciation while at the same time you are yourself.
Let me know what you think.
