      You'll find it difficult, I'm afraid. US visa restrictions are very tough. You could look for jobs in your area, but I'm afraid that few companies would be willing to sponsor you for a visa unless you are in a very skilled job or a role for which there are no suitable US candidates. To be honest, your best route to the US would probably be to get a job with a UK company that has a US presence (or a US company also based in the UK- i.e. as you said you were in hospitality then an interntational hotel chain, or a cruise liner or...). Work for them, impress your boss, and then see if there are opportunities to be relocated (at their expense) to the US when the time is right.

      I would join an online dating agency and marry the first American that will take you.

      Seriously, a btec would count for nothing in the US. If you were to go onto university and study, then maybe you could make the move to study in America, Once accepted by a US university.

      Apart from that. your going to have some difficulty.

      as with Stev above your qualifications and background will make this almost impossible. I would not try the whole marriage thing unless you were really in love. I moved to the USA 6 years ago from the UK and it can be very tough. At your age i admire your ambition but i would worry you have the life skills needed to pull this off. Work hard, save some money and try and buy a business in the USA that can sustain yourself. Good luck.
