Bismihi ta'ala

You are able to do an 'aqiqah for yourself. Please just keep in mind that it is best that all the mustahabaat / makruhaat of 'aqiqah are considered.

There are a few options that you can choose to get this done.

1. Contact your local Muslim butcher, and ask if they do 'aqiqah sacrifices.

2. Visit your local Islamic centre and speak to them if they can accept the responsibility of doing the aqiqah on your behalf, after you pay its amount.

3. Contact trustworthy Islamic charity organisations, and ask if they have an animal sacrifice program, where they distribute the meat to the poor and needy.

With prayers for your success.
