lace can throw in his/her perspective.
As to being self-taught - join the club. But I’d be careful about “bragging” about it. When I was a professional musician, there was this guy that wrote a kooky theory book. We was always proudly pointing out that it was self-published. I always thought it was an odd brag - anyone can be self-published and it just means that no publisher was interested.
I probably wouldn’t point it out per se in my resume - they’ll infer it from a lack of a college degree. You can point out any FCC certs you have (though I don’t think they are much value). You can talk a little about your coding journey in a cover letter and definitely in an interview, but I wouldn’t waste valuable real estate on your resume pointing out that you’ve had no formal education in coding - something they can already tell.
It also reminds me of a singer that used to brag that he does everything by ear? I wanted to slap him and tell him that we all play music by ear - it’s just that some of also took the time to learn how to read and write it. He was bragging about his lack of education. I’m not saying that you can’t get a coding job without a coding degree (I certainly did) but it’s also not something worth bragging about.
As to getting hired in the US or Europe because you speak English well - I know a little about this because I am an American trying to get to Europe. Yes, speaking good English is a good thing. Many coding shops, even in non-English speaking countries work in English. But that alone isn’t enough. It is very hard to get hired as a developer for your first job in a foreign country (It is A LOT or paperwork). Also hard is getting your first job working remotely - they don’t know much about what you can do. True, there might be some contractor position you can get, but these are often contracted out to shops in some country or other.
My advice is to keep applying but also look for any freelance work you can get, even small jobs. It was a freelance job that I got doing React Native that really helped me get hired (but that was as an American and applying to an American country.) I don’t want to discourage you, but we need to manage expectations. If you work long enough and hard enough, something will work out, it’s just not going to be easy.
That’s my two cents, anyway.
