I see everyone is giving you the usual response based on their jaded experience of the US immigration system and your shocking naivety about it.

Really by far your best option is the Canadian International Experience Class visa, also known as the Working Holiday visa, which allows you to live and work in Canada for up to a year before you are thirty.

If you can actually get a decent job, the employer might then be willing to sponsor you for a work permit and you go from there.

More information here.

There are UK university courses that allow you to study in the US on a J-1 or sometimes M-1 visa. E.g. some of the culinary courses. But I think the Canadian IEC probably makes more sense in your situation.
