Sandra I Parker on Nov 15, 2018:
I would love to live in The UK and specifically Wales. Probably South Wales.
My ancestry is mostly British but also Wales, Ireland, and Scotland.
Also one percent Jewish of which I am very proud!
I’m from the USA and understand it’s very difficult to get “in”

I work as a Personal Care Attendant
What are my chances?
