Maersk, one of Denmark’s largest companies (shipping), was recommended to me by a few people as a possible source of funding. Two days ago I sent them an email asking for sponsorship. At least their response was quick:

Dear Ms Shafiq,

Thank you for your e-mail. Unfortunately, we cannot meet your request for sponsoring your studies at the Kaos Pilots. However, we thank you for the interest you have shown our company and wish you good luck with your studies.

Yours sincerely,
Susanne Nielsen

Oh well, I had to start somewhere! Just means there’s more to go…
