Ideally have it proof-read by a mother-tongue English speaker.
Yesterday, I wrote a long response to your original post, but ended up deleting it before posting. I said, largely, what @Just-B and @PopsD said, but I was considerably more direct and specific, which is why I didn’t post it. It would probably have come across as harsh and deflating, which no one wants at such an early stage in their career. It was, however, intended to be helpful.
The gist of it was, that I feel you really need to learn about design before setting yourself up as a designer.
Your knowledge of typography is fairly non-existent and I am afraid your website demonstrates little evidence of any sort of understanding of design and layout – and those graduated tints are painful! Just because you know how to code them, doesn’t mean you should.
As a potential UX/UI designer, your own website needs to be your very best work. It’s your showcase. Your portfolio. I am afraid your website appears to belie a lack of understanding about the career you wish to pursue.
As mentioned, I am not saying any of this to be cruel or hurtful, but there is no point sugar-coating things. As it stands, I think you may well be sending off a lot of job applications and receiving a lot of rejection letters in return.
My suggestion would be to get a good, accredited design education before thinking about a job in this field. The completion is tough and there are some very good people out there. Learn from the best. You need to be one of them.
The other route is an internship, or an entry-level job and work your way up. However, if at all possible, I think an education route would be better.
We all start have to start somewhere, but I think it is wise to have realistic expectations. Personally, I think, you are some way off getting job in this field. There’s nothing wrong with that. We’ve all been there, but is important to know what you need to learn. That way your efforts are constructive and productive and you won’t waste your time coming up against the same brick walls.
Your resume states that you already have a Masters from Birmingham (UK rather than Alabama, I assume?). Out of interest, what did you study? Also, if you have a Masters, you will have done a BA or BSc before it. Oddly, this is not mentioned in your CV? Why the move away from areas you originally studied towards design?
